Cricket Violin by Magic Fluke
Just like Magic Fluke's renowned Fluke, Flea and Firefly ukuleles, the Cricket shares the same distinctive design and quality features. The Cricket is a full-scale violin, versatile enough to satisfy seasoned violin and fiddle players looking for an affordable, durable travel instrument as well as beginner students seeking a fully set-up, ready-to-play first instrument. Furthermore, the Cricket is made in the USA.
With its unique open headstock and use of simple Grover friction pegs or optional geared Pegheds, the Cricket Violin is remarkably easy to tune or restring.

The arched top is CNC machined solid spruce with a choice of solid walnut, mahogany or maple neck. The included chin and shoulder rest is adjustable three ways to accommodate all players. The end
result is a surprisingly full range, warm sounding violin that's comfortable to hold and easy to play.
