It is important you are aware that some online suppliers particularly those not dedicated to stringed instruments will not send your instrument out fully set up, and in fact you may receive your instrument sent straight from the box i.e. Bridge down Sound post down etc. This workshop set-up is crucial if you want to play your instrument when you receive it. Otherwise you will need to take it to a specialist violin shop and have the set up professionally carried out. This will generally cost a minimum of £25.00, so unless stated we would advise you to check first. We check adjust and set-up all instruments before they leave our workshops. However full professional upgrades are available by request which includes better strings, hand cut Workshop Bridge and sound post.
