I think you guys are just having way too much fun down there!  Great promo. I especially liked the logo on the overhead door at the end. Nice way to end the video.

Let the bow flow.

That moment, of the violin being smashed to pieces, was a bit of a shocker for me, as well.

I got over it though.  😉

Thats a pretty well crafted video!  Talent on both ends of the lens!

 

My critique:  Skip smashing the violin, its fun.  Use that time instead to tell the people why a complete set up is needed.  Something like "If you dont love it right out of the box, we havent done our job"

Thanks everyone. Please don't feel bad for that violin. The truth is that it was a very cheap and thick $50 violin that arrived to us in pieces. We glued it together just for the video.
It was funny because Michael banged the heck out of it 3 times before it really shattered. If you look closely at the back (he was holding it so that it wouldn't be obvious that it was broken) you'll see that it is damaged.
Disclosure:
The American Stringed Instrument Foundation (or Fiddlershop) monitored the making of this video.
No real instrument was harmed in the making of this promotional film.

Very well done video! I also enjoyed getting a glimpse inside Fiddlershop.

Hmmm...The Smashing Violins...sounds like a good name for a band.

When the work's all done and the sun's settin' low,

I pull out my fiddle and I rosin up the bow.

I still think that he should've smashed a viola. Hey, I'm a violist so I can definitely make viola jokes. (to all violists out there)

I thought the fiddle smashing was smashing. I knew right away it was a prop violin, but couldn't help a little instinctive cringe. I think violas get smashed enough. Now a cello, that would have been something to see :p

LOLOL !  Hahaha - yup I already posted on the FiddlerShop page but I have to say it again - awesome promo !   And despite the smashed $50 fiddle - these guys really do care about the instruments they sell, and more to the point, the total satisfaction of their customers.  

You can't go wrong with an instrument or accessory from FiddlerShop !    

Trust me.  I own one.    And, as my fiddling journey progresses, I  hope to upgrade soon ! thumbs-up

I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes. D'oh - guntohead.JPG

Please make your own, different mistakes, and help us all learn :-)
