The Stentor Conservatoire violin outfit is chosen by intermediate players and often recommended by teachers as a step-up instrument for students. They offer a high standard at a reasonable cost. These instruments are made using an inside mould giving fine detail and accuracy to the assembly of the body. The front and back plates are carefully graduated from attractive selected tonewoods. The conservatoire has a carved spruce front and carved flamed maple back and ribs, finished in Stentor's Shellax varnish which has been developed over many years. With ebony fittings and traditional inlaid purfling, this responsive instrument is a high quality outfit often recommended for its sound. It comes with a selected wood bow with natural white horsehair and full mounted ebony frog and a deluxe oblong lightweight case with integral cover, backpack straps, music pocket, hydrometer and case blanket.
