The Cremona SV-600 violin is handcrafted by skilled luthiers with long years of experience. The finest close grained solid spruce and flamed solid maple are carefully shaped and handcarved and graduated for the finest tone. The neatly inlaid wood purfling beautifies and protects the edges while the hand-carved maple scroll perfectly follows the Old Italian Masterpiece that inspired this violin. The tone is rich, sympathetic and even across all four strings, with marvelous carrying power. The fingerboard and trimmings are finest ebony and the varnish is a rich transparent shade of light orange. Completing this fine outfit is a strong, well balanced carbon fiber bow and an oblong lightweight rigid foam case, plush lined with matching blanket. Genuine Thomastik Dominant strings-the first choice of professionals everywhere, are fitted to this superb instrument.
The finest, highly figured maple forms the backs, sides and necks. Choice, narrow-grained spruce is used for the tops. These aged woods are chosen for their inherent tonal properties as well as their visual appeal.
All instruments exhibit refined and artistic workmanship in every detail of construction. The purfling and edgework is neat and the arching is graduated to perfection. Outfits range in appearance from a beautiful, slightly shaded transparent varnish to the authentic look of a fine, old instrument with natural wear patterns from centuries of use. All Artist violins go through several steps during the setup process to assure the best tone and playability possible before leaving our facilities. Premium D’Addario Prelude or genuine Thomastik Dominant strings are also used.
All fingerboards are beautifully shaped from the most select polished ebony for beauty, playability and durability. The pegs, tailpiece and endpin are of the finest ebony or select boxwood. Some outfits feature a lightweight composite tailpiece with four built-in finetuners.
Outfit includes a lightweight, oblong case with padded plush interior and matching blanket. Depending upon the specific outfit, a Brazilwood bow or a genuine Pernambuco bow is supplied.
Backed by years of expertise as a pioneer in the production of high-quality bowed instruments, Cremona new Artist level violin outfits are perfectly suited for students at the highest levels of education, or the working professional looking for a fantastic sounding and reliable instrument for frequent play. As with all Cremona instruments, each violin in the Artist violin is hand-crafted in the finest Italian tradition by some of the world’s most skilled luthiers, painstakingly hand-carved from the fine tonewoods to achieve a sonorous, sympathetic tone with exceptional carrying power.
Fine, flamed maple and even-grained spruce are hand carved and graduated to ensure a sweet, sympathetic tone with plenty of carrying power. The thin, transparent varnish is of highest quality, and the strings are genuine Thomastik Dominants. This outfit comes complete with a genuine horsehair bow, a hardshell case and violin care products. The SV-600 is a step-up instrument. The appropriate violin having the best tone quality and looks for the advanced student, the SV-600 features a tighter grain in the spruce top, which results in a richer and more complex tone. The pegs and tailpiece are of a better quality and the maple in the neck is beautifully flamed and finished. It is a great-looking, great-sounding, great-playing instrument that will provide many years of reliable service. This instrument is setup to Cremona standards at their U.S. workshop.
