The Alexandria 100 offers a step-up violin for an entry level price. A violin with spirit varnish offers a better tone because it is thinner than lacquer used on most violins. The clean, precise craftsmanship combined with hand-graduated spruce top and flamed maple gives this violin an elegant look and a superb tone.
The outfit includes D'Addario Pro-Arté strings and a French Aubert bridge to enhance tone quality. Also included is a teacher's favorite: a German made brazilwood bow and rosin. The oblong wood case with a deluxe burgundy plush interior comes with a zipper pocket on the exterior for sheet music. The stylish plush interior includes a pocket for rosin and shoulder rest and two bow holders.
The violin is made in a factory located in Reghin, Romania. This region of the world has a sizable population of skilled woodworking artisans where handcrafting violins is a centuries old tradition.
