Gliga model Vasile Master Fiddle, made in Romania

The best quality solid Carpathian resonance spruce top is matched with a one-piece Carpathian Birds Eye maple back and sides.  This instrument was selected after the popularity of last year’s contest Gliga Vasile violin. This violin has a warm open sound and will surely continue to  open up over time.

BMVS 700 Strad Model Violin

Romanian violin revoiced and hand varnished by J J Hanson, owner of Beautiful Music Violin Shop.  We imported a new Romanian Stradivarius model violin, removed the top and regraduated it to our specifications to get the best tone possible.  Once done with regraduation, the owner hand finished the instrument with his original Italian varnish formula.
