Which to choose? Many ask the difference between Artist, Virtuoso, and Maestro violins, and essentially each is designed expressly to be superior to the line(s) before it, in construction and tonal quality. The Artist is a fantastic beginner's instrument, for a beginner who is looking for a violin that is easy to play, but also has a crisp clear upper register and decent power on the lower. We use the highest quality fittings and strings we can, to create an instrument that proves to be a value in the market, priced well under anything similar. (The StringWorks Setup™ helps even more so in this regard). Choose the Artist if you are a beginning-intermediate violinist but still want an instrument that can produce a beautiful sound. If you want a more highly figured, more tonally capable instrument, take a look at Virtuoso or Maestro.
