The Gliga Genial 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 Genial 1 violin has an excellent sound and is highly suitable for a beginner, and for the player taking lower grades.

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

We fit Pirastro Tonica strings to this instrument.

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 now fit fine tuners to all our Genial instruments (not illustrated).
