I just hope this isn't the wrong thread to post this, but I've kept looking at the other thread titles and this seemed the most likely place, so forgive me if I'm posting in the wrong place

Okay, having said that

Hi there everyone
I've really come to love the tutorials and the helpful nature of the community especially fiddlerman himself.
I have never had the opportunity playing one of fiddlerman's violins.

Right now I live in Italy for the duration of my studies.
Lovely country but diffcult language and very very expensive violin set up and repair ?
I'm thinking of asking my friend who's currently visiting her family in the states to order a concert violin outfit and to bring it back when she returns.
The problem is that she can't come and visit the store in person plus the fact that she'll return to italy pretty soon
I need your help fiddlerman
I'm actually planning to impress my violinist italian buddies here and I really want to show that it's possible to find a decent violin online and that you won't be saddled with tons of time and money setting it up again and again as with other so called "violins"

Would you be so kind as to help me and my friend out here, it would be super nice of you if you would set up and prep the violin personally with some nice strings so that when she comes back I can show why fiddlerman is the guy to go to when you need help.

Btw I've tried the dominant strings on a friends violin and I'm really impressed, does the ones coming with concert outfit perform better?

Grazie mille?

Hi @Sephirothkisama :

I can't speak for Pierre (Fiddlerman), but I'm sure that he'll respond personally. He not only provides great educational resources here, but also great customer service on

Anyway, just wanted to say hello and welcome to the forum! Keep us posted.

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

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