The table is medium to fine grained spruce and the 1-piece back is - as well as the neck and ribs - nicely flamed maple. The violin was completely checked by our luthiers and by our violin player on playability.
In our workshop it received new ebony pegs, new ebony chinrest, new ebony tailpiece, a new bridge and new strings. These are new German silver wound steel core strings with good projection, easy to play while allowing rapid finger performance. We use these strings on mostly all of our violins to provide a comparison of the tonal qualities of each instrument in the videos.
