This instrument has been set up in our string workshop.
The Paganini S260 is craftsman-built in Europe from solid loft-seasoned European tonewoods, and features a lightly flamed maple back and a spruce top, hand carved scroll and ebony fittings, giving it the desired specification for a high quality student violin. The classic Stradivarius violin pattern is complemented by a pleasant, mid-amber brown finish to provide a fine quality European-made student violin of exceptional value. Although quite similar (in terms of features) to the Stentor Conservatoire, this instrument benefits from the finest European craftsmanship and well-aged tonewoods, and is unquestionably superior to its Chinese counterpart. This is a superb student instrument, handmade in a European workshop with a history of instrument-making going back several hundred years. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
Supplied as an outfit with a fully-lined European pernambuco bow, high quality strings and a westbury case. The Westbury case is a more traditional shaped wood-shell case, and offers a very good level of protection! Also available instrument only, or as a variety of outfits
All violinists will need a shoulder rest. We recommend a Viva or a Wolf, which are available from Omega Music.
Every violin we sell is first inspected in our on-site workshops. We make any necessary adjustments, to ensure that your violin will reach you in optimum playing order. Please make sure that this service is offered by a retailer before buying, as most student violins do not arrive from the manufacturer “ready to play”. The workshop process requires extensive technical knowledge and specialist tools. We use Fedex Express courier service to ensure quick, safe delivery of your instrument, and all violins are packed in double wall boxes which we have manufactured to order for this purpose.
