The Archer Violin by Gear4music features many premium features. The fittings such as the chin rest, pegs and fingerboard on this instrument have been made from ebony, which is a dense wood made to restrict moisture from the body damaging the instrument. The body has been made from hand carved spruce and maple to give a resonant tone with plenty of character throughout the range of the instrument. It has then been hand varnished to give an antique finish.
Everything You Need
Included with this instrument is a lightweight case, with a large outside pocket for storing tuners and metronomes and an inside pocket for rosin and smaller items. The moulded case also includes space to hold a bow and shoulder straps for easy transport. A bow and rosin has been included to get you going straight away.
"Any student, as I was, would be impressed by the striking rather than anonymous look of the instrument. There is much to celebrate - the glossy varnish coupled with the splendid 'antiqued' look would generate enthusiastic ownership."
"The proportions of this full-size violin tick all of the required boxes. I particularly like the scroll and purflings."
"In conclusion, without doubt the instrument is very competitively priced and represents excellent value for money." ZONE Magazine

The product price includes a one year warranty and 30 day money back guarantee.
However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.
The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:
- Warranty is extended to 3 years from the date of delivery.
- Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 90 days (terms apply after 30 days)
- Collection and delivery costs are included for the first two years
- Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 3 years if it has not been used!
- Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
- Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
- If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
- The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount
Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.
For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.
