1/2 size Violin outfit.

The Gliga Gems 2 violin is handmade in the European town of Reghin, set in the Carpathian mountain forests in Transylvania.

This famous violin-making region has been a centre of excellence for over 300 years. The Gliga workshops were opened in 1991 and one of the violins made there became a treasured possession of Sir Yehudi Menuhin.

This Gems 2 has an rich dark sound and is highly suitable for the lucky beginner, but especially  appreciated by players taking intermediate grades or just enjoying violin music..

It has a Carpathian resonance spruce top with one piece back, ribs and neck made of lightly-flamed maple. This version of the instrument is finished in a traditional oil-based varnish. The  fingerboard, pegs, nut and tailpiece are of ebony, as are the chin rest, saddle and end-pin.

The outfit is completed with a handsome plush-lined oblong case, and the bow is a suitable choice,made of brazilwood with natural stallion hair.

We try to keep these instruments in stock, but when we run out it can take 3-4 weeks  to replace them. The demand is high and their production is limited to the skilled craftsmen working on them!
