5-string violin Quintone ELITE 4/4
Our attractive 5-string violin in a special, high quality version with a bold, flamed maple back and antique finish! Selected solid woods have been used for the well seasoned spruce top as well as the flamed maple sides and neck. The neck and fingerboard are optimally designed for 5 strings. The tonal spectrum of this violin is gigantic - with the lowest string tuned to C there are completely new possibilities, making this instrument quite unique.
Built within the EU, each violin is finally reworked and set up by our in-house luthier. We deliver the instrument with plate bridge and Wittner fine tuners. After extensive testing, we have decided to equip the "Quintone" with Thomastik-Dominant nylon core strings. The result is an even, pleasant playing feel and a rounded sound on all five strings.
For optimal playing and sound quality we recommend you use the matching Thomastik "Dominant" colophony. Those who have not tried it will not believe how much difference the right rosin can make!
Our 5-string violins fit quite comfortably into a violin case made for 4/4 violins.
