This marvelous violin is worthy of the finest professional player! The finish is a convincing reproduction of a fine, old Masterpiece, with all the marks of wear that would occur in two centuries of use. It has a dull patina that is most pleasing and the color of the varnish is a lovely Golden orange. The selected solid spruce top and the well-flamed solid maple back are hand-carved and graduated to perfection, and the resulting tone is rich, free and sonorous, with wonderful carrying power. The trimmings are of finest boxwood in the Hill style, with black pips and collars. The fingerboard is genuine ebony. Thomastik Dominant strings are fitted and the outfit includes a resilient, well-balanced pernambuco wood bow strung with genuine horsehair. The case is a lightweight oblong rigid foam model with plush interior and matching blanket. With all these strictly professional features, this outfit is a phenomenal value for the price.
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.
