Higher quality string instruments at prices a student can afford

There were already many options for students before Prodigy came along. The trouble was these student string instruments, though affordable, were of inferior quality. And so for years the only string instruments students could afford were made in automated factories in Europe and elsewhere. Thousands of talented students never knew how good they could or ought to sound.

Too often, young musicians had to wait until they were semi-professional before they could afford an instrument that was completely hand-made. Prodigy changed all that. Through an exclusive agreement with Eastman Strings, Prodigy offers students a choice of violins, violas and cellos, all completely hand-made.

What makes these string instruments such a great value?

Fractional sizing is one of the core reasons that our string instruments have been so popular with young musicians.

And since students are known to make progress, and out-grow their instruments, re-sale value is important to students and parents alike. By ensuring the highest quality of materials and craftspeople, Prodigy string instruments, when well taken care of, naturally hold their value.

Another fact that adds to the value of Prodigy string instruments is that they are new. Which means they have a full lifetime limited warranty. Used instruments have no such safety net from the manufacturer. So Prodigy students can be assured that their instrument will perform well without requiring excessive repairs, which cost both time and money.

Our warranty is just one reason why a new Prodigy instrument is superior to a used one. But there are many others. Delve deeper into the differences between new and used string instruments.
