mezzo-forte 5-String Carbon Fiber Violin

Comes with gig bag.

Special Note: mezzo-forte instruments are not available for out of shop trials. All sales are final.


A carbon fiber 5-string violin in carbon weave black. Basically the same as the classical carbon fiber violin. However some changes were made to enable comfortably playing on 5 strings.

The bridge and tailpiece are cut by hand (tailpiece made of ebony), the fingerboard is composite material which feels exactly the same like ebony.

Strings are D‘Addario Helicore which give a warm tone on the lower strings and brightness on the upper strings. The instrument is as easy to play as all our carbon fiber instruments and the measurements are all the same as on a wooden violin, for an immediately familiar feeling.


Unless shown as 'In Stock' there will be a 2-3 week lead time for special orders.


From the vendor's site:

After three years of intensive development we are proud to present the first fully carbon violin available in the worldwide market at an affordable price. The Violin, designed and produced by us using state-of-the-art technology, produces a quality of sound easily comparable to that of a wooden instrument whilst offering far greater presence, projection and ease of playing as well as being visually stunning.

"such elegant lines”,”...a perfect finish” , ”...and wonderful to hold.” – initial reactions have been very positive.

The advantages of a Carbon Violin:

- complete insensitivity to fluctuations in atmospheric conditions. (such as in temperature and humidity)

- strength and stability

- visually stunning

- a full and pleasant sound

Details:

The body of the violin is hand crafted using carbon-fiber matting - made in Germany – guaranteed

The interior of the instrument corresponds to that of a traditional wooden instrument; only the cornices are excluded - for two reasons :

1. A conscious decision to create a modern slim design whilst maintaining (mirroring) the form of a traditional
instrument.

2. The cornices of a wooden instrument serve to aid the construction, providing support and enabling the front, sides and bottom to be fixed firmly together. These cornices can dampen the sound are not required when using carbon-fiber.

The sound post, bridge, pegs, chin-rest and tail piece all correspond to that of a traditional instrument.

The f-holes are designed in modern style.

The "Design Line“ instrument is fitted with an NFC composite material fingerboard, which feels exactly like ebony and is completely insensitive to climatic conditions.
