Comments about Ren Wei Shi Artist Model 1 Violin:
This violin was a gift for my son who plays in a local Youth Symphony. We heard good things about Ren Wei Shi and got what we thought was a awesome deal on a quality violin. When it arrived, my son's instructor made several recommendations to make it a great instrument - it needed different strings, the pegs dopped, new fine tuning screw, and a shorter bridge. She also recommended re-hairing the bow in the near future. All-in-all we spent $275. Then we took it to a friend who is a concert violinist. She was not happy with the sound, even considering we had paid so much to improve it. We heard her play it along side a less expensive violin. The cheaper one sounded better. To make matters worse, within 6 weeks the pins holding the handle to the case fell out. I don't blame Guitar Center - it's hard to know the individual qualities of each violin and as I said, Ren Wei Shi does have a good reputation.
