I was looking for videos with the Fiddlerman Concert Deluxe Violin. I came across reviews of the Fiddlerman violins by Alison Sparrow, who, by the way, has superb violin lesson videos. She has reviewed six Fiddlerman violins:
She made a montage of six of the Fiddlerman violins she reviewed side by side. She has clipped together a snippet of the songs she did in individual reviews. They are all the same exact song snippets. I think there are snippets from three songs played on each violin. This makes for a great comparison.
She notes what violin is being played during the snippets so you know what you are hearing. This is really interesting and a great way to compare the different violins.
I hope it was okay to post this.
They call me, “Mellow Cello”
This is interesting...
I am leaning toward the Artist as far as the sound, from what I can tell. I can only base it on the audio from my computer and the recording.
Interesting that the Master and the Soloist sound similar in quality. However just based on the sound it is very difficult to tell what quality is what...
There just is not enough information to go on for me to really evaluate these instruments from this video. I would need a ton more to go on.
And I will also say, based solely on what I can hear, my own violin sounds superior to any of these violins played in the video (sorry @Fiddlerman).
But my preference is to play an instrument myself to really evaluate it.

I watched this quickly last night.
It seemed to me that I'd happily buy the Master solely for its bass. But the Soloist (as expected from the name?) has better treble. Couldn't there be a compromise?
I'll watch the longer videos when I've got more time. I have to practise for a violin lesson now, lol!
I have watched a lot of the Fiddlerman comparison videos, but I get lost in the comparisons and find it more difficult to tell one from the other. Perhaps because I am still rather new at this. I really like this one by Allison because you get to hear all 6 side by side by side, so to speak. It's easier to appreciate the sound differences. How about making one like this Fiddlerman? I would like to post it on my site with you doing the comparisons. I think it would be good for potential customers. Just a thought...
