Hi there,

so my Fiddlerman Concert violin has just recently arrived and I was really excited when I got it.I carefully unpacked the violin so that if there was anything wrong I could resend it back to Fiddlerman. When I saw the violin, i noticed a few spots on the front that looked like they havent been finished. On the back, i noticed a section that looked like something was stuck to it while being finishedIMG_1438.jpgImage EnlargerIMG_1444.jpgImage EnlargerIMG_1440.jpgImage EnlargerIMG_1441.jpgImage Enlarger

I have no idea how the imperfections happened to your instrument and I won't speculate about it either.  I would just say call Pierre at his shop and explain the situation.  He offers outstanding customer service and he will make the situation right.

On a side note, did you text the sound quality of the instrument out?  How do you like it?

Never mind maneuvers, just go straight at them.

Since I am just a beginner, i asked my violin teacher to test the violin and she didn't seem impressed at all.

AsianQtip already contacted us and we immediately offered to refund a partial credit, exchange, or refund for the problems. The varnish on this violin seems to be a bit soft and may have been left out in the heat somewhere.
It's possible that the sound-post moved during shipping which could explain your teacher not liking the sound. We'll check it out when we get it back here.
