Gliga Vasile Professional Violin 1/8


Presented here in a Genova variation, the Gliga I features a better grade of wood again compared to the Gliga II series.

The Genova's shaded honey finish and matching flamed maple fittings whispers to an old Italian tradition.

In the Gliga workshop it is only the most experienced builders that practice their hand with the higher grades of wood selected for Gliga I instruments. These expert craftspeople draw on decades of knowledge as they graduate the plates with precision and artfully tune them to produce these fine violins. The Genova's antiqued honey colour varnish is carefully hand applied so as not to hinder the instrument in any way, and together these processes result in a rich, well-rounded sound audible to the discerning ear.

The fine, straight grained spruce continues to age and so the sound 'opens up' the more the instrument is played (and these violins certainly deserve to be played often and well). The book-matched flamed maple back exhibits striking flame, and is also matched to the solid maple ribs. This Genova model features matched flamed maple chinrest, pegs and traditional wooden tailpiece (fitted with eye-catching gold adjusters for ease of tuning).

The Gliga Vasile violin is professionally set-up in the Bows for Strings workshop with quality fittings including German Wittner tailpiece, ebony chin rest, best quality French Despiau bridge, and Pirastro Evah Pirazzi strings.
