Student level (Up to $1,500)
The Paganini line is the best student level instrument (violins, violas, cellos, and basses) available on the market today. All Paganini line instruments are hand carved with a stunning solid maple flamed back, spruce top, commercial oil varnish, "Wittner" (German) tailpieces and real ebony fingerboards and fittings. Each instrument is personally set up using Dominant strings (violins and small violas), Jargar and Helicore (larger violas and cellos) and adjusted to its quintessential state of sound production by Charles W. Liu in our shop in Midvale, Utah. On-staff professional musicians are involved in this process. The instruments come with a bow, and case (type of bow and case depend upon the instrument purchased). All of our instruments are a beautiful deep reddish/brown color with a warm, handmade tone quality which is pleasing to the ear of the beginning student.
