Violins are beautiful instruments, but playing them can be dangerous. A violin with a bow case will protect the instrument from any damage, from scratches to dropping. A violin bow case is designed to protect both the violin and the bow, which is made of animal hair, from damage. The bow case also protects the violin from dust, dirt and scratches.

Violin bow cases come in a variety of styles, including cases for standard violins, cases for violins with extra-long strings, cases for violins with scroll and cases for violins with purfling. We've tested hundreds of violin bow cases over the years, evaluating them for durability, comfort, and ease of use.

Our violin bow case reviews evaluate features, including durability, comfort, and ease of use. We also test cases for weight, which is important for carrying the case. Our top pick is the Sara Lee Violin Bow Case, which is suitable for standard violins. It's lightweight, comfortable, and protective.

Mendini By Cecilio Violin For Kids & Adults - 4/4 MV300 Satin Antique, Student or Beginners Kit w/Case, Bow, Extra Strings, Tuner, Lesson Book - Stringed Musical Instruments

Mendini By Cecilio Violin Kids For & Adults

by Cecilio Musical Instruments

Elegant Design: As beautiful as most orchestral string instruments, this sleek violin has a hand-carved spruce top with maple back and sides. A finish of metallic varnish, maple fingerboard, chin rest and an alloy tailpiece with 4 fine tuner make this a work of art.

When reviewing beginner violins, it's important to look at the essentials, and this kit has a high-quality violin, bow, extra set of strings, rosin, adjustable shoulder rest, clip-on tuner, and a lightweight hard case with pockets, backpack and shoulder straps. The bow and strings aren't premium quality, but if you're a beginner and buying this instrument for your child, they probably won't notice. The bow has a bit of a cheap feel and the strings are a bit harder than recommended, but they will loosen and wear in over time. The violin is well-constructed, has a good balance, and is played well. The shell is thicker than our budget pick, and it has a very well made head rest. The tuning pegs are plastic, but they feel well built, and so far they haven't loosened or fallen out. The adjustable shoulder rest is soft and comfortable, and the case is sturdy enough to hold and transport the instrument. The included tuner is simple to use and works well. The included lesson book is well-written and easy to follow. The e-book download includes lessons and tracks recorded by solo violin and piano accompaniment. The lessons cover the basics of playing, including posture, bow hold, basic technique, how to tune, how to read music, scales, chords, and pieces to play. Overall, this is a great beginner violin. If you've never played a stringed instrument before, or you've been away from playing for a while, this is a good instrument to start with.
