Upper Level Violins
As one progresses through their musical studies, the need for a better violin can often arise. The most common question we get is, “What makes a more expensive violin worth the price?” In general as the price goes up, the materials get better, the craftsmanship improves, but most importantly, the tonal capabilities improve. The more time a maker spends refining the inside of the violin, and in particular the thicknesses of the top and back, the more the violin has to give to a skilled musician. It can yield more uniqueness in the tone, more character and depth, and more nuance. A fine instrument should allow a fine musician to express herself freely with relative ease. We are proud of our upper level selection, and we have a excellent array of violins both new and antique, and from some of the finest workshops and makers.
