Caledonian Series Violin
Named after the Scottish forest lands where old growth Scots pines were planted and spread into the highest elevations. The Romans named the area and the pine trees have grown to be over two hundred years old. The land was too steep, too rocky, and too remote to be agriculturally useful, so the forest survived, and the area has been unchanged since the 1500’s.
These violins sound fantastic for the price. Made in a small violin shop in Ganzhou, these instruments are like finding your new favorite food. You wonder why you haven’t tried these instruments sooner. They have a pleasant, inviting sound. The instruments are set up with a Despiau Chevalets bridge, ebony pegs, German Wittner tailpiece, and features an orange-brown spirit varnish on a golden ground.
An excellent starting violin to make into your own outfit.
