This 7/8th is an unlabeled Chinese violin on the smaller size, with a body of 13.5". Very nicely antiqued, the violin is very comfortable in smaller hands with a charming mature tone. Setup with Dominant strings and a French Aubert bridge with Wittner fine tuning pegs.
The Antonio Vivaldi is our beginner violin with a setup that far exceeds the ability of the average starter instrument. High quality Aubert bridge custom cut for each instrument, a custom fitted soundpost, and high quality strings. Each instrument is expertly prepared to work with the student, not against them. The bridge and nut are filed to not cut the string, the pegs are treated to smoothly turn, built in fine tuners for weight reduction, and the string and nut height are corrected so it doesn't hurt to press the strings down.
