The case it came in.
The violin, bow, and the extras that came with it.
They had sent the original one I ordered soon after I ordered it, but before it arrived, it broke, so they offered to send another one (at no cost). I agreed to that, and was expecting it to come within a couple weeks afterwards.
It actually took closer to one month to get here, which I am not too happy about.
But, I am happy that it's here, and that it didn't get damaged somehow.
I haven't played it yet, but I did check it out, and compare it to my old violin. The new one is bigger, as my old one was used when I was in elementary school and is too small for me now.
It is been over 10 years since I last played, so I will have to relearn how to play. I bought a songbook a while ago, so I am really looking forward to getting back into it.
Comparing the sizes of my new violin (left) and my old violin (right).
I have always loved music, and instruments, so having the violin, as well as a ukulele and a guitar (can you see a theme going here?) makes me very happy. I am very rusty at playing instruments, as I haven't played any in so long, but I am willing to practice, so I can get better (especially better than when I played in elementary school, as I didn't really practice a lot back then!!).
I want to learn how to play other instruments as well, but this is one that I absolutely LOVE!! And one of the ones that I wanted to play first.
Looking forward to having a relaxing time, playing my new violin!!!
