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.

    Bought online because that's what you do now.

    Buying a violin online wasn’t something I wanted to do until I found Antonio Strad. My entire city is shut down due to COVID so I had to look online. I started doing some research and found some great reviews about them. I gave them a shot and it turned out great. Honestly I bet I got better deal than I would have in the Bay Area.
    These guys are awesome and were willing to help me make my decision over two phone calls. I am now one of their happy customers! Bought my 5H from them and very happy about it. The perfect violin for me.

    This was made for me!

    I have been using it for two weeks, and I can say that this is the violin was made for me. It sounds funny but I really feel a special connection with this instrument. It is very different from my first student violin that we bought locally from the music store. I’d recommend this even for beginners who have just started with playing the violin. They will not have a hard time learning and playing on this violin and it is also easy to tune and keep tuned. Great purchase!

    Greta violin for the money

    This outfit comes with all the accessories that I have been looking for in a violin. It is high quality and looks and feels like a classic. This violin comes with a bow and other accessories, so I don’t have to spend more money buying the other things to start playing. The 5h is made for ease and comfort even if I don’t know much about playing the violin. Thanks to the guys at Antonio Strad!

    It took me a while before I decided on a violin online because I wanted to make sure that I was making the right decision. Antonio Strad made it easy. These people are real experts in violins! They helped me choose the right intermediate violin. When it comes to quality and performance, this violin is one of the most impressive student violins around. It produces a warm sound and is designed for both people new to learning and those advancing. Comes with all the accessories, too. Thank you, guys!

    Excellent for the price.

    This violin is one of the best that money can buy for its price, especially if you’re a student. There is nothing that I can compare it to. Nothing like the ones from Amazon. It is one of the best violins that I have ever played. It comes professionally set up and unbelievably there was no tuning needed except for the A string it had loosened. I am very happy. Thanks guys!
