The Stentor Student I is the ideal entry-level student violin outfit. This is an instrument that offers reliable, consistent performance and good tone, enhancing the learning process for the student. Each instrument is carved from solid tonewoods with inlaid purfling and good quality pau rosa pegs and ebonised straight grained fingerboard. It is fitted with a good quality bridge and tailpiece with integral adjusters. The outfit includes a reliable wood bow and well-designed lightweight case with fitted interior, external shoulder rest pocket and music pocket, bow holders and rosin as well as backpack carrying straps.
Brand new as it was in the shop from which I got it (shop closed due to retirement). Stentor's leaflet, and the cellophane on the straps, are still in place, it is completely unusued.
I would say it is untouched by human hand since, for some reason that escapes me, some buyers seem to be mortally offended at the idea that human hands have touched it, but yes I did take it out of the case to check it all and I will be tuning it. Gosh!! Seriously, this is a better buy than from mega retailers who make a virtue of not opening the box.
