That is a good starter violin. I actually just got one in 1/2 size for my daughter.
Right now, I don’t know a definite ETA on those. It’s been hard to nail down ETAs on some of our instruments because of the coronavirus situation. However, I don’t think that it should be a really long time before we get more of these.
They now come with D’addario Prelude strings.
As far as the setup goes, we will basically go over the whole instrument and check everything out to make sure that everything works correctly and that it plays and notes correctly. We make sure the tuners hold correctly, the intonation is set correctly, etc. Basically we just make sure that everything is good to go before we send it out.
