Man Claudiu, violinmaker, makes these beautiful instruments for us by hand in his workshop in Romania. Only the finest European woods, fittings, and oil varnish are used in the making of each masterpiece.
The tone of the Man Claudiu violin is very complex - rich and warm with fantastic strength and clarity throughout the registers. It is suitable for the pre-professional player or for one who wishes never to have to upgrade, as the quality of Man Claudiu's work is equal to that of many of the most popular contemporary instrument makers. While the tone is spectacular from the very start, the reward comes later as it begins to break in and the tone matures with the player.
Available with either boxwood or ebony fittings of the highest quality. (Hill-style with heart-shaped pegs)
Aubert Mirecourt Deluxe bridge, ebony fingerboard, inlaid purfling, solid, carved throughout, aged European spruce and maple of the highest quality, lightly antiqued oil varnish. Each instrument setup with Dominant strings, but other strings are available by request.
