Engineered to perfection
The Gewa Allegro VL1 violin is the ideal instrument for ambitious beginners. By using the historic combination of a solid European Maple body with a solid European Spruce top, the VL1 violin produces a focused, powerful sound with plenty of body. And thanks to these European tonewoods, the instrument's tone will continue to improve over time.
Unlike other violins, the Allegro is CNC-machined compared to hand-carved. Not only does this enable GEWA to keep the cost down, but it also ensures that every single violin is made to the highest standards. This is especially important for schools and music centres.
Similar to more expensive violins, the Allegro includes full ebony fittings. Not only do these look great, but they're also hardwearing compared to cheaper woods. For the perfect finish, the VL1 violin has been hand-varnished with a coating of red-brown natural resin varnish.
Thomastik Alphayue strings
The Thomastik Alphayue violin string set offers an alternative to standard solid-steel strings. Assuring an instant response, supple playability, and colourful tone, the Alphayue strings are guaranteed to make performing fun. This set includes a combination of steel and synthetic cores and a variety of windings including tin-plated, aluminium, and silver. Featuring a medium tension gauge which offers optimum versatility, the Alphayue strings are ideal for players who wish to concentrate on their own playing style. These strings all have ball ends which are suitable for musicians who require a reliable sound that maintains its voice over time.
Everything you need
Included with the Allegro VL1 violin is a lightweight oblong hard case with plenty of storage. For ease of use, the case includes backpack straps to ensure that commuting is never an issue. The inside of the case can hold up to two bows, and even features a small accessory pocket - ideal for the included rosin.
Also included is a bow crafted from quality carbon. Similar to more expensive bows, the bow features bright lapping, a comfortable thumb grip, and a three-piece looking end screw for a premium look. This bow also uses natural horsehair for the best possible sound and is suitable for any full-size violin.
