Sojing violins SUCK!!

Strengths: Cheap price

Weakness: You get less than what you pay for.

I bought one of these violins because I thought it would be nice to take up playing again and I didn't want to spend a lot. Let me tell you something, these are sorry excuses for violins. The bow is so crappy that the hairs fall out while you rosin it (if you can call what came with it "rosin"), the electronics are a joke. and the strings don't stay in tune for more than a minute. The only thing I did like was the design of the body, but that wasn't enough to make me keep it. I sold mine in an online auction for less than I paid for it and I still feel ashamed about ripping off the poor fellow who purchased it from me.

good intro to electric violins

Strengths: Great entry price. Good intro to electric fiddles

Weakness: Case is soft bag, so only dust cover. Rosin is not that great, need to buy quality cake. Same with strings. A little heavy for long practices.

This is a good violin to practice with. The neck and body are slightly longer than a normal wooden violin. Which is not a bad thing, as there are books recommending practice on a viola to get better movement on the fingerboard.
I replaced the strings with a good quality nickel chrome wound ones (cheap to buy) and also the bridge with a nice one. Easy to do yourself since the bridge stands on a flat pickup, so no contours of the belly to shape the feet to perfection. You need a shoulder rest as well which stayed on permanently. The edges are too hard on the collarbone as it's not wood but hard plastic. Instead of bagging the instrument in its case, I hung it by it's neck with an metal hook for easy access. The bow is standard one, no frills, and did not fray when used.
The pickup had volume and tone control knobs. They worked well. And I used to play it through the headphone jack. There is also a larger jack to fit into an amplifier. You can play without the headphone and still hear it although not with much volume. The fingerboard is plastic as is the pegs, so very easy maintenance materials. If you are a small person or someone with low strength in the arms, I would not buy this as it is heavier than a normal violin. But it's also good practice to play with those 'extra' dimensions. The battery lasted a long time. I sold my one in order to buy a wooden violin. Would I buy it again? No I would buy something better like everyone who gets into instruments. But it was a good start. You need a better rosin and strings to make it sound ok. The ones that come with it don't do justice.
