Amati Bel Suono 101 - $499

2015

These instruments are available for rental or purchase and are just lovely. They have a sweet, strong sound and all vary a bit in look and sound. As always, we recommend coming down and hearing them side by side!

 

As with all of our instruments they have a solid ebony fingerboard and real purfling inlay. This instrument has been professionally set up to be in precise playing condition. The wood has been aged and dried so it will not change shape over time; a well-made violin will last hundreds of years. Our student-level instruments come as a package with a case and bow.

 

Amati Bel Suono - Solid Back - $699

2015

This instrument is new with a lovely sound, clear and rich; the sound is much nicer than most others in this price range. The violin has a hand-rubbed oil varnish with a satin luster. The fittings are solid ebony with parisian eye inlay and this particular violin has a gorgeous curly maple quarter sawn solid back. The chin rest in the photo is ebony, and the style can be switched out depending on which one is the most comfortable. An amazing value; this is available for rental or purchase. Includes a case and bow of your choice - 20% off when purchased outright.

Amati Bel Suono - Split Back - $699

2015

This instrument is new with a lovely sound, clear and rich; the sound is much nicer than most others in this price range. The violin has a hand-rubbed oil varnish with a satin luster. The fittings are solid ebony with parisian eye inlay and this particular violin has a very tight grain which is a good visual indication of an instrument that will project well. The back is quarter-sawn curly maple. The chin rest in the photo is ebony and the style can be switched out depending on which one is the most comfortable. An amazing value; this is available for rental or purchase. Includes a case and bow - 20% off when purchased outright.

Farbegeigen 4/4 Violin - $549 (C052)

2006 (consigment)

This instrument was conditioned, varnished, and set up here at Austin Strings. We do only a few of these each year; they are ordered directly from Romania and the wood comes from the Carpathian forest. We get them in the white when the wood is still bare. The advantage when working with an instrument in the white is we know exactly what is put onto the wood. It is very important that the varnish is applied correctly so as not to clog the grain. If a violin is varnished incorrectly, the wood will not vibrate and will muffle the sound. We first remove the top of the instrument and regraduate the inside to an ideal thickness, then we seal the wood with a substance that both protects and amplifies vibration. Once the top is reglued, we seal the outside and begin the many layers of a varnish recipe that is very similar to many old German varnishes. The varnish is handrubbed and a totally unique color. As an instrument gets older and gets played more often, it will sound better and better. This instrument was set up in 2006. Comes with a case and wood bow. As this is a consignment this particular instrument is available for purchase only.
