    Watch Dietrich demonstrate the Arco violin to be sent to the Juilliard School of Music, New York

    The Arco violin is handmade of solid timbers with an ebony fingerboard, chin rest and pegs.

    Set up and fitted with bridge and sound post by the experts at Animato Strings, it comes with a good bow, light-weight case and rosin.

    Depending on the physical characteristics of children, a violin of a particular size is most suitable. Which size is right? Just follow the recommendations of your child's teacher as the teacher's recommendation can vary from the table below, depending on many factors, such as arm length and finger length.

    The first row shows the approximate age of the player to consider a particular size of the instrument and when it is time to move on to a bigger size.

    Age when ready / until 3 to 4

    The Arco has been set up with a well carved bridge, a well fitted and well-placed soundpost, the grooves in the nut have been adjusted and the bow is good! The strings are good steel strings.

    The new Arco model has a matte finish varnish and an ebony fingerboard. It has a particularly impressive sound.

    3. Best Product, Service and Integrity

      Posted by Marita on 28th Aug 2015

      Our daughter loves her violin, we have owned this for 2 years and the service was fantastic, flawless and absolutely professional for a phone and online order it exceeded my expectations, we previously had a bad experience ordering a cheap violin online before I found Animato. I cannot rave on more about the service and the beautiful product we purchased and experienced from Animato especially for the price. Thank you so much

    4. Beginner but excellent service and beautiful sound

      Posted by Unknown on 23rd Mar 2015

      My daughter purchased 1/4 violin before from the this store and due to her size needed an upgrade to 1/2 size. Excellent service and so attentative and careful when choosing the package. They let me choose a violin we would like by the wonderful owner playing the violin for us. The sound of the violin is so beautiful and even though my daughter is in a beginner stage, the beautiful deep sound of the violin encourages her to play better. Thank you for such a wonderful instrument and service.

    5. Great Service

      Posted by Brandi, USA on 24th Jul 2014

      I'm a percussion music major and decided I want to learn how to play violin. I thought this violin was a good choice because it was well made & had an affordable price! Great for beginners! I emailed questions about my order & was replied to promptly. I appreciate the customer service very much! Thank you!

    6. Phone order

      Posted by Gemma on 13th Jun 2014

      Ordered a 4/4 Arco outfit over the phone. Dietrich was extremely helpful and went out of his way to call around and see if he could ship it to me by the next afternoon as I wanted it for a concert. They even swapped to an oblong case for me! The violin arrived today - I love it already! Thanks so much, I will definitely be back!

    7. Great service and huge range

      Posted by James on 17th Apr 2014

      We purchased a half size in April 2014.
      We were very impressed with the service and the large range of string instruments.

    8. Upgrading from 3/4 Size to 4/4 Size again

      Posted by Cathy on 11th Jan 2014

      I purchased 3/4 Arco last year and have been very happy with it. My daughter has outgrown it and now needs 4/4 so buying another one!

    9. Arco and Animato - Quality, service and value for money

      Posted by Steve on 17th Jun 2013

      Both my girls play violin, and we had purchased a 1/4 size Arco outfit before - it makes a beautiful sound. On the advice of a friend, we purchased another brand from a general music store when moving up to a 1/2 size, but were so disappointed with the sound and inability to return the instrument, we bit the bullet and shelled out for another 1/2 size violin - this time, Arco from Animato. So save yourself the trouble folks - go straight for the Arco and the superb service from a DEDICATED strings retailer in Animato.

    10. Best Value and Excellent Customer Service!!

      Posted by Joshua on 30th Oct 2012

      Fantastic quality instrument. As A student was unsure of getting a nice sounding instrument, must say I am definitely proud to say that Animato strings have provided me with the support and confidence to select the instrument which was for me. Any questions you have, they can answer and help. 5/5. Recommend to all people wishing to buy a student instrument, this is the place for you.
