Gliga III 4/4 Violin with Tonica - Made in Romania
The Gliga III violin's reputation for value and quality without compromise is well deserved, reflected by it's best selling status
Each Gliga III's journey starts in the Carpathian Mountains in Europe where legendary wood used by the old master builders is carefully selected before being sent to the Gliga workshops in Romania. There the expert luthiers use traditional methods to construct the body which is finished in a special dark oil varnish developed for the Australian market. Ebony pegs, chinrest, endpin and fingerboard are carefully shaped and fitted.
Upon landing in Australia each violin is inspected before being made into outfits in our warehouse. German Pirastro Tonica strings are added to the outfit along with the Wittner Ultralight tailpiece and French Aubert bridge supplied with the instrument. The strong, hard-wearing FPS woodshell case and FPS brazilwood horsehair bow completes the package.
The careful attention to detail and high quality fittings results in a robust European instrument that provides a student with every opportunity to excel in the difficult early stages of learning.
