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 violin 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 flamed maple back, and  the ribs and neck are also made of lightly-flamed maple. This version of the instrument has a satin 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.

Some buyers may wish to buy better strings and string adjusters. Just add to basket.and we will fit them for you.
