We try always to keep these in stock but -please note - there sometimes can by a 3-4 week wait for this instrument as it is made to order in Romania.

The Gliga Gems 1 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 1 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, lightly flamed 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.

We fit the famous German Pirastro Tonica strings giving the instruments a warmer, fuller sound than the normal unbranded steel core strings found on other student violins.

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 can fit 4 fine tuners, if required - mention when ordering.
