We searched far and wide for a violin like this one and it was worth it! But don't take our word for it: ask any teacher who has tried one. This gorgeous top-tier violin has a rich, throaty sound, with full projection, ideal for "turning up the volume". But it is also remarkably sweet. Easily comparable to other violins costing much more, we believe this violin is the best value in today's violin market. Made under the watchful eye of an award-winning master, the wood is first-rate and the antique varnish is first-quality, and applied entirely by hand. Finally, our best workshop staff perform a full-setup to exacting specifications, working side-by-side with a professional player to be sure each violin performs at its optimal level.
