The Cremona™ SV-600 violin is handcrafted by skilled luthiers with long years of experience. The finest close grained solid Spruce and flamed solid Maple are carefully shaped and handcarved and graduated for the finest tone. The neatly inlaid wood purfling beautifies and protects the edges while the hand-carved Maple scroll perfectly follows the Old Italian Masterpiece that inspired this violin. The tone is rich, sympathetic and even across all four strings, with marvelous carrying power. The fingerboard and trimmings are finest Ebony and the varnish is a rich transparent shade of light orange. Completing this fine outfit is a strong, well balanced brazilwood bow and an oblong lightweight rigid foam case, plush lined with matching blanket. Genuine Thomastik® Dominant® strings-the first choice of professionals everywhere, are fitted to this superb instrument.
