    Fantastic, speedy delivery, Storm Caroline notwithstanding. Easily erected and I like the clips rather than screws. Lightweight feature particularly relevant as I am expecting to fly to Norway in 2018...

    Thankyou for your speedy and efficient service. The case I bought is good value and well made. The only negative point I wish to make is the UPS packing box. If I had been an older person with...

Description More info Reviews  
These Hidersine Vivente Academy violins are fitted with revolutionary Wittner fine-tune pegs which will eliminate time-wasting during lessons from constant re-tuning. The pegs are internally geared, very much like those on a guitar; eight turns of the peg head converts to one turn of the central spindle. This mechanism ensures that tuning is alway fast, easy and accurate, and naturally they don't slip or get stuck.

The violin itself has a flamed maple back and ribs and a straight-grained spruce table. It has an ebony fingerboard for improved playability and is supplied with rosin and a Hidersine octagonal brazilwood stick bow with natural hair.

The outfit is complete with a plush lined rectangular case with plenty of room for storing accessories (shoulder rest, rosin etc.). The case has detachable carrying straps and a separate zipped pocket for keeping all of your music.
The following review comes from MiPro Magazine - December 2016:

Aimed at the student market, the Vivente is full sized and finished in flame maple. Also fitted as standard are Wittner’s fine-tune pegs, making it much easier for younger players to tune the instrument. These pegs are made of a hi-tech composite and a lightweight alloy, so they are easy to handle and offer great longevity. The really great thing about them is that you don’t have to tighten or loosen them to tune the instrument - it is sufficient just to turn the internally-geared head to confidently tune the instrument in a fraction of the usual time taken.

The outfit also includes a Brazilian stick bow, ebony fingerboard and a seasoned maple bridge. It also comes protected in a shock-proof case with detachable straps.

So, an attractive looking instrument. But what would a professional violin teacher make of it?

MI Pro asked the teaching staff at De Rosa Music Hub in Bishops Stortford to put the violin through its paces and come back with their own thoughts and opinions. Here’s what they had to say:

“There’s a consistent sound throughout the range.”

“It has a very nice chin rest, non-slippery surface, and a good shape. It also encourages good body positioning during playing.”

“The neck size was very comfortable and should suit the majority of students well.”

“It comes with a nice case.”

“The violin’s bow is fine for a student instrument.”

“It comes with excellent geared tuning pegs, which help tuning and are very stable. Great improvement on the standard solid wood pegs on most student violins.”
