I am so impressed with this violin! It is beautiful! We had fun playing with it and trying to figure out how to play it. We are newbies! This vilin comes in a great soft case that is lined in gray felt. It has a zipper pocket on the front for extra things and a smallbox opening on the inside for extra string and rosin. The bow is nice horse hair and sits in the case held in place by a holder and a pocket. The violin has a velcro strap to secure it in the case. The violin itself has a beautiful, rich finish. It is light and easy to hold and comes with a chin rest. I am completely excited and impressed. We are trying to learn about musical instruments and how to play them. This company has so many nice, quality items! I am very pleased with their products!
