Made in Germany, this carbon fiber violin by Mezzo-Forte is designed and produced using state-of-the-art-technology. This futuristic vision produces a quality of sound easily comparable to that of a wooden instrument while offering a far greater presence, projection and ease of playing.
With the standard Carbon Fiber Violin "Design Line", Mezzo-Forte has already established a very high quality standard. This "premium line" violin takes things one or two steps further! One of these instruments was honored with the German Musical Instruments Award in 2015, beating off 22 wooden masterpieces in this competition.
Body: Two piece, layered carbon fiber. Strengthened at upper and lower blocks. 2 component lacquer.
Fingerboard: Spruce fiber composite (injection moulded). Dark and hard like ebony. Smooth to the touch and perfectly shaped - and helping preserve natural resources. The decisive feature being the fingerboard will not warp - thus making it ideal for use with carbon fiber.
Sound Post: "Anima Nova" carbon fiber sound-post, which always fits perfectly, and allows adjustment of tension within the instrument.
Pegs: Wittner Fine Tuning Pegs with Swarowski Crystals
Bass Bar: Carbon and bonded to the instrument. It gives warmth to the lower strings and helps stabilize the top.
Bridge: Master bridge "Milo Stamm" royal quality
Strings: Evah Pirrazi Gold or Maker's choice. We set up this violin to reach its fullest potential.

About Mezzo-Forte violins:
The Mezzo-Forte design concept is to develop instruments for the 21st Century. Any measurements used in traditional violin making have been transferred in order to help the player feel immediately familiar with the instrument. Therefore switching between wood and Carbon Fiber should not be a problem.
From the beginning to the end, all instruments are made in Mezzo-Forte's workshop in Germany, and they set a high value on quality and making fantastic instruments.
All Mezzo-Forte instruments come with a certificate of authenticity and a unique serial number which makes them easy to identify.
I purchased a Mezzo-Forte Carbon Fiber Premium Line Violin through Fiddler shop located in Florida. The Fiddler shop was wonderful. The Fiddler shop allowed me to home trial the fine instrument for over 4 months before purchase. During that time the Fiddler shop also allowed me to try 8 bows and compare the Mezzo-Forte Carbon Fiber Premium Line Violin against 3 other violins of wood and carbon fiber construction. I requested Fiddler shop to compare Mezzo-Forte Carbon Fiber Premium Line Violin against the Carbon-Klang "Elena". It was unfortunate that the comparison was made with a design line instead of the premium line. The video by Fiddler shop favored the Carbon-Klang. I did not find their comparison accurate when I compared the two instruments myself. I had two violin instructors and numerous family members listen to both violins and everyone agreed there was no comparison; the Mezo-forte Premium line won hands down every time. Some of the differences were: 1. Mezo-forte Premium has fine tuner pegs, Carbon-Klang has box wood pegs. The Carbon-Klang pegs even slipped several time while playing losing tension on the string. The Carbon-Klang required great effort to tune. No fine tuners were available. Mezo-forte Premium is very easy to tune and holds the tune once the strings are settled. 2. The overall construction of the Mezo-forte Premium is much more finished as compared to the Carbon-Klang. 3. The sound produced by the Mezo-forte Premium is richer, more vibrant, more colorful, has more clarity and resonates one to their very soul, as compared to the Carbon-Klang. I had my orchestra instructor, try the Mezo-forte to obtain her opinion. She is a member of the Atlanta GA symphony for over 20 years. She said, "WOW" three times in five minuets. 1. "Wow, Gary you really have to be different" 2. "Wow, this violin even has a wolf" 3. "Wow, I am genuinely impressed" I am very pleased with the purchase and the whole purchase process with Fiddlershop Sincerely, Gary Campbell
