Reliable Student Instrument
Shaped for comfort. Ideal for practice. With a hand finished body, the Gear4music student violin is crafted from maple and Canadian spruce. These tonewoods are chosen because of their lightweight, strong and flexible nature. Resilient design and reliable construction. To protect against cracks forming at the edge of the instrument, you can find traditional inlaid purfling on the violin’s top. Traditional looks, so you can fit into any ensemble. The hand sprayed varnish gives a classic orange-brown appearance.
A Warm Tone to Transform Your Playing
An instrument student’s will want to learn on. You get an easy-playing instrument that produces a warm and smooth tone throughout the registers. Any player just starting out will not want to stop practicing. A traditional fitted maple bridge, jujube ebonized fingerboard and maple neck allow easy and quick shifting between positions.
Easy and Accurate Tuning
Quick response and stable pitch. The long-life, steel core strings are ideal for beginners. The strings' coloured silk wrappings also help students with identification and provide friction against the pegs. The strong, metal tailpiece is fitted with four integral tuners to aid students in achieving accurate tuning quickly and easily.
The Gear4music student violin arrives as a full outfit. This means the violin comes with additional accessories, alongside a factory set up. With the strings already wound in, all you need to do is pull up the bridge and tune to GDAE. Included is a hardwood bow, foam case, and rosin. The learner has everything they need to get started straight away.
The bow is reliable and easy to use. It's crafted from hardwood - a favourite for bow construction because of its density and durability. Designed to withstand the stresses of a student developing proper technique, the traditional horsehair on the bow is ideal for many beginners.
The included case is ideal for transporting the instrument to lessons and performances. This durable but lightweight case is a perfect fit for the violin providing protection when out and about and safe storage. It's finished with a tough canvas covering with zip opening and straps plus a pocket for keeping sheet music and other accessories safe.
For those just starting out, or if you're simply looking for a more complete set-up, this violin also comes in a Student 1/4 Violin and Accessory Pack by Gear4music which includes a number of additional accessories including music stand, violin rest and tuner.
