Our Giulia violins are our concert-tier house instrument. Named for shop team member, Julia, these violins are evocative of a vintage, old-world sound. The Giulia’s tone is warm, round, rich, and distinctive. It is capable of a great dynamic range, from huge power, to delicate pianissimos. These instruments are suitable for advanced students, professional players, or even beginners who already know that they want the very best.
The Giulia features a vintage aesthetic, from the tasteful antiquing on its warm, dark brown varnish, all the way to its Art Deco style interior label, by local LA designer, Mike Kelley. Giulia violins are set up with ebony pegs, tailpiece, and chinrest, and Thomastik-Infeld strings.
