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.

    A joy to play and a beauty to behold

    I ordered the Lee 30 after my student violin eventually gave up on me. It came well packaged, giving the impression that the company put a lot of effort into packing the fiddle to prevent damage during transport.
    Out of the box for the first time, I was blown away by the remarkable craftsmanship. The body is perfect and complements the fiddle’s natural aesthetics. The pegs are sturdy, and stay tuned.
    I love the spruce top with its natural grain. The flamed maple sides and back are also exceptional. I did a zoom call and learned that they use only 10-year aged solid wood in the construction of the Lee 30.
    What really blew me away is the sound the violin creates. I have already played it several times, and I can say this violin is way better than student violin that I started with.

    Remarkable craftsmanship

    I don’t usually write reviews. For the Lee 30, I’ll make an exception.
    First, it is easy to say that the company did a phenomenal job of putting the fiddle’s different elements together. From top to bottom, whoever crafted this violin loves his trade.
    The wood looks amazing with golden brown and half satin and half glossy finish. I’ve been playing for hours with this baby since I got it.
    The pegs are easy to manipulate, don’t get stuck but stay put.
    While this violin looks impressive, you’ve got to play it to fall in love with it. Its craftsmanship lends a beautiful tone. It is warm and bright with a lovely low end. An excellent choice, indeed.

    The wood is amazing.

    My daughter was playing in school and is now taking violin lessons online. She told me her instructor told her to ask for a new violin because she’s advanced enough for an upgrade.
    A friend of mine suggested I should try the Lee 30 for my daughter. Long story short, I ordered it. It is a beautiful violin, dang near too nice to play… it’s perfect.
    The top has a natural grain that looks like amazing. I love the feel of the top and just reread the product description… apparently that is spruce. The F-holes are perfectly symmetrical. Am I geeking out here?

    More than pleased

    Violin is not the most affordable hobby in the world. But it can eventually pay for itself if you play professionally.
    I am not a professional violinist in an orchestra but I do hope to some day. I’m not the type of person who will spend a ton of money on something but I decided to splurge on this.
    When someone recommended the Lee 30 to me, I got interested for a few reasons. First, its price suits my budget. Sure, it is still a lot more expensive than entry-level violins. But this violin plays like a more expensive violin without the ridiculous price tag.
    Second, playing it is a joy and money well spent. The Dominant strings make for fantastic sound. Overall, I’m more than pleased.

    Great for new(ish) player.

    This violin has a lovely warm tone and exceptional sound projection. It’s phenomenal sound quality makes me want to play more, which is great.
    Sure, most violins look similar. They have the same components and parts that can make choosing quite challenging for newbies (I’ve only been playing 18 months).
    I tell you now, the Lee 30 is a marvelous musical instrument any aspiring violinist should get. The maple back is gorgeous. And the price point is a great deal compared to higher end violins.
