One of our most popular student outfits, the Ricard Bunnel G2 Violin Outfit is far superior to any other offered at this exceptional price point. Student violins sold by other retailers at this cost are typically coated with a thick, glossy lacquer finish that does not create quality tone production, while the Ricard Bunnel G2 Violin has an authentic oil finish.
The oil finish is a very unique feature usually seen on more expensive violins that not only looks more professional, but remains true to historical, tried-and-true standards of hand-crafted violin making. The finish, construction, shape, fittings, and design of the Bunnel G2 Violin give this instrument a warmer, more natural, and projective sound than any competing student violin of this quality. Watch the performance video of the Bunnel G2 to hear the quality of this instrument in live performance.
Steel-core D'Addario Prelude Strings come installed on the instrument, greatly improving playability and sound. While most student violins come with basic "solid" steel strings with no winding, little resonance, and a cold sound, Preludes offer a warmer, richer sound that both complements and enhances the sound of the instrument.
For beginning students, we recommend the following beginning violin books from our sheet music collection to get started. The following method books teach introductory techniques, music theory, and how-to basics for learning to play the violin:
FREE expert setup by our staff of professional luthiers is included with your purchase to meet or exceed all MENC specifications and standard measurements.

It sounds good and well organized,
However it needs some cosmetic make up to make the connections smooth as the main body and the stem.

My son realy likes the violin compared to the one I purchased at an auction and had re-setup. Even his violin teacher ha complimented on the violin. I just hope he sticks with playing the violin.

Okay maybe I'm a little obsessive, but this violin sounds as good as any I've ever played. I think I will have to get a lot better before I need anything else. It is also easy to finger. Also, and perhaps more important, it is easy to tune.
The best part is the people at Kennedy Violins. They actually enjoy talking about violins and playing. They also have excellent instructional videos.

My loved 3-year old girl needed a violin to start playing, so as an amateur-musician I started researching brands, and details of the instrument. Kennedy Violins always offered me kindness and information, even though I wasn't sure to buy one of their violins. After my research I realize there was a very good chance to get a very good instrument from Kennedy Violins at that price range. I was right.
The best violin of my daughter's group is a Ricard Bunnel. It has a fair sound and a great finish. Is quite easy and precise to tune up, which is something rare in this size of violins. These instruments are finished by the hand of a luthier, which makes a world of difference.
I guess I will need to buy all the way up to the 1/1 in Kennedy Violins as my little one continues growing!

The G2 is a beautiful violin. I ordered it for my Granddaughter's 9th birthday and she will be thrilled. I looked all over the internet and music stores for a student violin and this far out surpassed all of the others in quality and price. I would definitely order from them again!

My daughter, who's been playing in the school orchestra for five years, loves this beautiful violin. I shopped around, looking for the best quality in this price range. I believe I found it in the Bunnel G2. It has a very nice, pleasing sound and we love the way it looks. The outfit is perfect and includes everything I was looking for. I appreciate the helpful and friendly customer service and quick delivery.
