The Raggetti RV7 violin is a Chinese made instrument featuring a consistently flamed back & closer grained spruce top (when compared with the RV5). The RV7 is produced with superior craftsmanship & higher quality wood. We recommend the RV7 as an excellent advanced student violin – it provides a fuller & deeper quality of sound with greater projection & clarity.
While Raggetti instruments represent good quality in terms of workmanship & materials, through our experience we have found that they benefit greatly from a professional setup.
Each violin is setup by hand here in our workshop – a process which includes fitting a new bridge & soundpost, refitting the pegs, checking & correcting the fingerboard & nut (including sanding & polishing for a smooth feel in the hand). The bow is also checked & rosined.
Each instrument is then tested for sound quality & playability and is re-adjusted if necessary so that it is performing at its peak.
