A beautiful European instrument tailored for the advancing student. Each violin speaks with a voice that demands to be heard
In the Gliga workshop it is only the most experienced builders that practice their hand with the higher grades of wood selected for Gliga I instruments. These expert craftspeople draw on decades of knowledge as they graduate the plates with precision and artfully tune them to produce these fine violas. The traditional oil varnish is carefully hand applied so as not to hinder the instrument in any way, and together these processes result in a rich, well-rounded sound audible to the discerning ear.
The fine, straight grained spruce continues to age and so the sound 'opens up' the more the instrument is played (and these violas certainly deserve to be played often and well). The book-matched flamed maple back exhibits striking flame, and is also matched to the solid maple ribs.
Like all violas and violins in Gliga's student line a Wittner ultralight tailpiece is included, chosen for its light weight, stability and ease of tuning. The Pirastro Obligato strings are known for the warm yet brilliant and focused tone, with excellent playability and response for high level playing. The outfit is completed with an original Articul bow and a premium HQ Half-Moon case.
