Presented here in a Genova variation, the Gliga I features a better grade of wood again compared to the Gliga II series. Beautifully presented in a luxurious HQ brand 1/2-moon shaped case with Violino strings and Articul carbon-graphite bow.

The Genova's shaded honey finish and matching flamed maple fittings whispers to an old Italian tradition

In the Gliga workshop it is only the most experienced builders that practice their hand with the higher grades of wood selected for Gliga I instruments. These expert craftspeople draw on decades of knowledge as they graduate the plates with precision and artfully tune them to produce these fine violins. The Genova's antiqued honey colour varnish is carefully hand applied so as not to hinder the instrument in any way, and together these processes result in a rich, well-rounded sound audible to the discerning ear.

The fine, straight grained spruce continues to age and so the sound 'opens up' the more the instrument is played (and these violins certainly deserve to be played often and well). The book-matched flamed maple back exhibits striking flame, and is also matched to the solid maple ribs. This Genova model features matched flamed maple chinrest, pegs and traditional wooden tailpiece (fitted with eye-catching gold adjusters for ease of tuning).

As with the Gliga II violins a set of Pirastro Violino strings is standard, selected for their easy playability and expressive range. Depending on the recommendation of the teacher, an upgrade to Pirastro Obligato, Evah Pirazzi, Jargar Superior or Opal strings may be appropriate. Your luthier may also recommend upgrading to a European aged maple bridge depending on your requirements.

The 4/4 outfit is completed with an original Articul bow and a premium HQ Half-Moon case.
