Violin Sizing

How to measure for the Violin

Lift the left arm and extend it fully to the side, parallel to the floor with the palm facing upward. Measure from the neck to the middle of the palm.

It’s better to play on an instrument that is a bit smaller than one that is bigger, especially for beginners. See our chart for the approximate sizing.

    Impressive quality

    Got the 4H violin from Antonio Strad based on a friend’s recommendation who is also a private violin teacher. I think I made a great decision. They helped me in every step of the way made a video with me to hear how it sounded compared to the Scott Cao. And I chose this over the competition because the varnish is better. Overall, this instrument exceeds my expectations and highly-recommend this to anyone looking to learn playing the violin.

    Very happy with my purchase. This violin includes all the accessories and a tuner. Everything a beginner needs but doesn’t think about at first. This is a great value instrument with a professional sound. Pleased with my progress so far and my teacher is very impressed, too.

    Absolutely great

    This violin is great. Beats my first fiddle which was given to me by a friend and needs a bunch of work. Instead of spending the money I just bought a new one.

    The 4h violin is made to help beginners like me produce a good sound and not become discouraged. It does its job perfectly. I wanted a black violin but they don’t sell one in black that is made out of wood. Other than that I couldn’t ask for anything more. Invest in your first violin with the 4h. You will not be disappointed. This one also comes with all the accessories you would need to get started. Impressive instrument for $420!

    Excelent value

    You won’t regret buying this well-made violin. It looks as great as it sounds. It is strangely lightweight but feels substantial (if that makes any sense). My son loves this. He’s always excited to go class (that never happens) and said that he’s getting better each time. There is no better news than to know that your children are finding fulfilment in their new hobby. Thanks to Antonio Strad for this wonderful instrument (and keeping my son’s attention).
