About this Model
These violins here are sold at a discount because the fingerboard has gone lower than usual. It will still move depending on your location's humidity, as with all violins. In some cases, the fingerboard moved back to normal positions. If you buy these violins, you should prepare yourself to a possible adjustments of the fingerboard.
The main focus of this model is producing an even, tonal response and a big, powerful projection. This model has become the favorite model for resellers because of its most bare bones nature, being setup with Opera steel strings (wound with aluminium) and a Chinese regular bridge. The reason this model exist is for players who like to customise their own violin with their favourite strings, or plans to do more work on their violin's setup themselves or through a local luthier. Favored by resellers because of the lower price, the reseller can often with a little work, make this violin into a very exciting model with a setup that is liked by the locals.
About this workshop
Old Violin House brings you Opera, an orchestra of masterfully made violins from the Dan Sun workshop. Dan Sun was a trained master maker from a world famous German workshop with history dating to the 1800s (the German brand of course, not Dan Sun). Finally, the art of German violin making can be realised in China, combining benefits of German violin making techniques and Chinese handicraft.
Opera Violins have come a long way, as much as 15 years, though only about 6-7 years it was first being introduced online. And many teachers and professional buyers have feedbacked that this workshop's violin is really way different from the other similarly ranked violins of other workshops, and so I've been working to upgrade Opera violins even more by creating this model. You will notice all Opera models will come with improvements, and I hope you are happy with it. It really takes a very long time, from getting the right tonewood matching, to getting the right varnishing. So here it is the classic amber varnish with the improved tonewoods.
