Question about Maxam Violin
If the bow is not making a sound on the strings, then there is a good chance you need to rosin it. Find the cake of rosin that likely came with your violin and pull your bow across it. The first time you rosin a bow, it will take quite a lot of rosin. This means you will be pulling and pushing your bow across the rosin for a couple of minutes, putting pressure on the bow so it picks up the rosin. When you are done rosining your bow, you should see the track of your bow on the rosin and when you play you should see a little rosin dust on the instrument (wipe it off when you are done playing). Rosin is what makes the bow "stick" to the string enough to cause the string to vibrate.

These are noted for NOT being prroperly setup!
Check the following:
The bridge should be centered within the length of the "f" holes... usually there is a slight "v" in the middle of the "f" holes.
The Back (side toward the tailpiece) should be perfectely vertical relative to the top surface.
Look into the "f" hole on the treble side. The sound post should be about 1/4 inch toward the tailpiece from where the bridge is located. The post should be vertical between the top and bottom inside.
The rest depends on the quality of the strings and the bow. The bow needs to be rosined.
Luthiers often don't want to work on low end vilins as they can't charge much...
Use google to find stuff about setting up a violin. There is a mass amount if information on the web, and probably some help on you tube as well.
