Cecilio CVN-500 Solid Wood Ebony Fitted Violin

Cecilio Musical Instruments offers handcrafted, instructor approved band and orchestra instruments that are held to rigorous quality standards and are designed with the student instrumentalist in mind. Cecilio tests every instrument at their overseas factories and then re-inspect them at their Los Angeles distribution center to ensure that you get the very best product possible.

The Cecilio Strings are individually handcrafted instruments that are made with centuries old techniques by highly skilled luthiers to offer every level of instrumentalist quality product with an affordable price.

The Cecilio CVN-500 Solid Wood Ebony Fitted Violin is a premium quality violin that is a step up from the CNV-300 model, which makes it more suitable for more experienced violin players.

The CVN-500 is made from solid spruce to the top and maple to the side, neck and neck, and along with ebony fittings this violin should last you for years of playing it. It has a gorgeous tone, a tone that would suit to a much higher priced violin. A high quality tailpiece with 4 nickel plated fine tuners also goes along with this violin which allows for great flexibility and allows the player to bring their own style in the music that they play.

The Cecilio CVN-500 also comes with a high quality bow that is made from Brazilian wood, and high quality horsehair. This bow is not cheap, and that is one of the advantages of Cecilio, again pointing out that they give you affordable high quality.

The Cecilio CVN-500 outfit comes with a VNC-30C light-weight form fitting hard case, quality rosin and an extra bridge. Violin package also includes Cecilio chromatic tuner with metronome, a lesson book, a lightweight form fitting hard shell case with pockets and strap (making it convenient to carry to school or orchestra) and the standard Cecilio 1-year warranty against manufacturer’s defects.

Pros:

  • I bought this violin so I could learn with my daughter! Aside from tuning, it required no other work; bridge was straight and centered correctly, string height is good, tuning pegs are nice and tight.
  • The fingerboard is very good on this violin and the strings are easy to press without getting ugly sounds.
  • The violin looks fantastic and sounds very good for the price.

Cons:

  • Minor imperfections on the paint but it’s not very noticeable from a distance.
  • The shoulder rest and tuner are adequate, but not exceptional.
