Zhenjie Zhao Cedar Music Model 120
This Zhenjie Zhao hand-carved violin is made with well-seasoned woods, and the oil varnish shows the well-figured curly maple back to its advantage. Plenty of projection in this instrument with a pleasing to the ear warmth usually found in higher priced instruments. This instrument was made in 2015. It has a two-piece maple back that is higly flamed with matching ribs.
The two-piece spruce top has various widths of grain with mineral lines.
This instrument has all ebony fittings and comes with a German Wittner tailpice.
The varnish is orange-brown on an amber ground and is slightly antiqued.
Thomastik Dominant strings with a Pirastro Gold Label E complete the setup.
