The perfect choice of woods
This Westbury intermediate antiqued violin boasts a Maple and Spruce body which provides a great resonant sound and a superb response. This is particularly useful for students as you’ll sound great straight away! These great quality woods have been carved by hand and manufactured to give every violin special character and optimum tone. From there, the instrument is varnished with a gorgeous antiqued spirit to make it look great and last a long time.
A huge feature for the Westbury intermediate violin is the use of Ebony on the fingerboard, chinrest, topnut, and pegs. Thanks to Ebony’s dense composition, it is highly resistant to the natural oils from your skin and provides an overall comfortable experience. To have all the fittings made from Ebony is a great advantage for an instrument of this price.
The Ascente series of strings are ideal for musicians looking to develop their tonal range. The strings feature carefully crafted synthetic cores which have stable tuning with a consistent feel across the entire length. The tone of the synthetic cores were modelled around real gut strings, but with a more reliable usability. The Ascente strings’ stable reaction to heat and humidity changes makes them easy to use while gigging without having to constantly retune. This series’ fast break-in time is suitable for musicians who want to pick up and play. The Ascente strings are ideal for developed musicians ready to take their performances on the road.
