Product Description

The Gliga I Antique violin is handcrafted in Romanian workshops featuring a flamed maple back, sides & neck, and a solid spruce top.

While Gliga 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). We also check & rosin the bow, so that you’re ready to play as soon as you receive your violin.

Each instrument is then tested for sound quality & playability and is re-adjusted if necessary so that it is performing at its peak.

Our added value setup explained & costed:
  • upgrade to Pirastro Obligato strings +$13
  • upgrade to new professionally fitted bridge & soundpost +$170
