Selected Finest European Tonewoods

The use of maple and spruce is a tried and tested combination used in superior quality violins. This combination produces a focused, powerful sound with plenty of body and tonal warmth, which will only improve over time. The woods are hand selected based on their age, before being hand carved for a sound and appearance full of heritage. The maple back and sides help provide a hard-wearing violin that works with the narrow grain spruce to provide a unique instrument with incredible response, projection and full tonal body.

Gold Level Set Up with Larsen Tzigane Strings

This Wessex XV Violin Outift undergoes a gold level set up, which ensures that it's ready to go at optimum playability as soon as it reaches the player. Larsen's world renowned Tzigane Strings have been selected for their smooth, saturated and warm tone, with unrivaled expression and projection. The instrument is completely stripped down and the nut is filed to the optimum height and spacing for the Larsen Tzigane strings and instrument. This results in ease of play for the performer, whilst producing the maximum amount of resonance and projection, allowing the player to make the most of the instrument. Combined with a High Grade Despiau "Two Tree" Bridge hand selected for its resonant qualities, this creates incredible playability without causing issues to intonation or tonal power.

Negri Venezia Violin Case and Marco Raposo Pernambuco Bow

The Wessex XV Violin Outfit comes with a Negri Venezia Violin Case which provides incredible protection as well as plenty of room for accessories. The Orchestra** Octagonal Stick Pernambuco Bow with silver mountings is an incredible quality bow to complement the tonal characteristics of the Wessex XV. Evenly balanced and lightweight, this bow completes the outfit for the Wessex XV Violin.

History of The Wessex Violin Company

The Wessex Violin Company builds upon the founding traditions of the English school violin manufacture, via technicians who have all been trained by the famed Newark College of Musical Instrument and Repair.
