The Artist 2 model violin is based on a 1742 Guarneri del Gesu that and is generally considered the darker sounding of the two Artist Models. It is entirely hand crafted and hand graduated to produce a full, resonant response. Ren Wei Shi are excellent musical investments worthy of any advancing student, and are also played professionally.

Amazing instrument/poor finish

By

Comments about Ren Wei Shi Artist Model 2 Violin:

I have been playing fiddle for 5 years and decided to move up from a 100$ fiddle to this one. The fiddle is amazingly rich in its tone, and is very responsive. It has a single fine tuner for the E string, wooden chin rest, and is really quite stunning. The bow that you get with it medium quality, but very playable. I have not had a problem with the case, which is as fine as the fiddle, and probably not ideal for frequent travel, or for use by children. My one and only gripe with this amazing instrument is the finish. The gloss lacquer/varnish looks like it was applied by a five year old with a spray can. There are runs and smudges all over it. All in all it is an amazing instrument that is well worth the price, if you want something to play, rather than something to look at and show off.

Great Instrument, but accessories are poorly made

Comments about Ren Wei Shi Artist Model 2 Violin:

I don't play instrument, but my daughter does. She has been playing for 8 years. She and her teacher both like this violin. However, the E string was broken shortly after we received this vioin and and bow hair came off too. Now the violin case is torn. The fabric for the case is apparently not strong enough. My child only carries the vioin twice a week to go to her lesson and orchestra rehearsal and we only have had this violin for about a year. So the accessories for this instrument are poorly made.

I'm delighted

Comments about Ren Wei Shi Artist Model 2 Violin:

I've been playing a very nice Ren Wei Shi Concert model for more than four years and decided to upgrade to the Artist model. I couldn't be more pleased with the Artist II. The new violin has both a warm, rich tone and a ringing resonance with lots of sympathetic vibrations on open strings. The sound is quite "big" (rather than "loud"), but the instrument also has the sensitivity to play pianissimo with great delicacy and clarity in all positions. Also, not mentioned in the description is the finish. This violin has what I believe is called a semi-antique finish. I think it could probably pass for an antique instrument. Plus, the finish is quite lightly applied which I suspect may be one reason it has such resonance. Switching from my very good student level instrument to this one has really taken my sound to the next level. I may not be playing any better on this instrument, but it certainly sounds better! I love it!
