Absolutely a beautiful Violin and well worth the price. This is a great deal for a beginner or someone who knows how to play. It has a great look and feels great in your hands. The package includes a violin, bow, extra set of strings, rosin and a soft lightweight case with external pockets for music sheets, shoulder rest, and interior bow holders as well as backpack carrying straps. I was highly impressed by the craftsmanship and sound of this violin. Perfect for a Christmas or birthday present for any music lover!
