If you are looking to upgrade your violin to a more advanced model, or you are an adult beginner looking for a quality violin that will last throughout your studies, the decision to buy a Messina violin would be a very sensible choice. This full size violin is a high-grade orchestral model, with superb craftsmanship and an impressive tone. All the violins we sell are set up in our workshop before they are safely and quickly dispatched. With a model like the Messina, our senior technician will inspect and set up your violin.
 
The Messina violin has a finely hand-carved spruce front, with selected, tightly-grained tonewood. This closeness of grain improves the ability of the wood to resonate, so is important in making this violin sound as good as it does. There is a highly-figured maple back, ribs and neck, with inlaid purfling and a traditional, hand-applied shellac varnish. High-grade ebony is used for the Messina's fingerboard and pegs, and the violin is fitted with professional, branded Pirastro strings. The bridge is made by Aubert-Lutherie and is perfectly shaped to the front of the violin in our workshop. The instrument also has a Hill tailpiece with single adjuster on the E string and a Guarneri chinrest. If you would prefer a tailpiece with adjusters on all strings, we can fit this for you on request.


The Messina violin is fitted with Pirastro strings and delivers a lively yet well-rounded tone, with perfect balance across the four strings. The brilliance of the tone is impressive, without losing depth - while the sustain is long and true.
The outfit has a quality bow and a quality oblong case.
