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.

    Violinist's best friend

    The Baldwin is a premium, professional violin that I bought at Antonio Strad.
    You can tell out of the box that it’s handcrafted by a luthier. I’ve had several professional violins in the past and must say this one exceeded my expectations in every aspect.
    I think even other soloist would agree that Baldwin has the appearance, sound, and overall performance that make a premium quality instrument.
    It is professionally setup, as it’s adjusted and tuned by Antonio Strad’s people. My fellows love it and were impressed by the way it sounds.
    Its wood is aged for at least 10 years, a great range ensuring it will sound well. Not to mention, this one has a maple back and sides and a spruce top, which are absolute factors for creating lovely music.
    The dynamics are superior, soft, moderately loud, loud, and very loud. Nuanced and complex, this violin’s sound is perfect for soloist that wants more complexity in their sound.
    I can perfect its sound anytime and without any issues.
    This beautiful violin is the best gift that soloists and professional violinists can give themselves. Highly-recommended shop with the best people around. If I could, I could have given this violin a rating of 10/10. Thanks Antonio Strad!

    Dream violin, finally

    The Baldwin is every violinist’s dream. It’s finish is what I really wanted, a step above the rest of the expensive violins out there. It is also beautiful to look at and its tones are rich, beautiful, and clear. Only the finest materials are used in its production, and I can definitely feel that a genius luthier is behind it. It is not that heavy, and it feels comfortable overall. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the people at Antonio Strad who have been very nice and responsive to all my questions about the Baldwin. They also gave me a video demo on how this appear and sound. Thank you so much for the pleasant experience. Will order my next violin from you one day.

    Great purchase, even better Baldwin

    My Baldwin is an amazing instrument. It was a little out of my budget but I decide to put a large portion of it on Affirm and will make monthly payments instead of buying a less expensive violin.
