Tuning is an essential part to developing a musician’s ear for perfect pitch, and contributes to note accuracy while playing. The D’Addario Planet Waves NS Micro Violin Tuner easily clips right on to a violin without damaging the delicate wood, and shows notes on its large-font, multi-color, digital display. Its calibration range stretches from 410Hz to 480Hz. Also built-in is a visual metronome so your violinist can work on rhythm after tuning, and it can be left on to help improve intonation during a practice session.
Made especially for the beginner violinist looking to advance their skills, the D’Addario Ascenté Violin Strings have several unique properties that facilitate and easier playing feel and long-lasting performance. Along with their graceful sound, these synthetic core strings settle in faster than the average string of their kind and provide better pitch stability – two qualities any violinist is sure to appreciate. The E, A, and D/G strings are made of different metals to accommodate standard playing techniques and unique characteristics associated with each string, and to increase their lifespans.
For the recording violinist, the Samson Go Mic USB Microphone is a tiny device with powerful capabilities. With a choice between two different polar patterns (cardioid and omni), any violin player can record in the mode that best suites them. No matter their decision, this mic will produce stellar audio reproduction with 16-bit/44.1kHz resolution. Compatible with Mac and PC, it contains a USB port and 1/8″ headphone output. Clip it onto a laptop, or stand it alone on a desk; it will pick up notes with clarity in either capacity. Also handy for field recording, podcasting, and more, any violinist will be able to take advantage of its multipurpose uses. Its compact size allows for it to fit into small compartments, including those in most violin cases, moving with any player on the go.
To accompany the performer, recorder, and the composer, the Samson LTS50 Lap Top Stand can be used in both live and studio settings. This adjustable stand moves up to 4.5′ in height and has a stable tripod base. Though it can be tilted for viewing preference, the silicon surface, front and back edges, and locking latches all work in conjunction to prevent the laptop from slipping. When not in use, the top can be removed and the base folds in for easy transportation and storage.
To protect any full-size violin from damage, the Gator GC-Violin Deluxe Molded Violin Case has a form-fitted interior with a deep plush lining to provide soft cushioning around the instrument, and a Deluxe ABS exterior with heavy-duty aluminum valance for rugged outer protection. Three chrome-plated latches securely lock the case closed. If a player prefers to use shoulder straps over the handle, they can attach them to the two built-in D-rings. This case is packed with protection, yet still has room to fit a spare bow, rosin, and other small accessories.

Advanced Techniques for Strings provides fundamental tools to enhance playing including a detailed practice routine for scales, three-octave scales and arpeggios, shifting exercises, and ideas for rhythm and bowing improvements.
