1/4 Intermediate-Advanced Violin - Gliga Gems 1 Elite

The standard setup for a Gems 1 violin is Thomastik Dominant strings and a standard tailpiece with one fine tuner. To change these settings, use the options at the top of the page. To select a case and a bow go to the top left menu and choose these items independently, or you can use these links for a 1/4 violin case and a 1/4 violin bow. All items will be shipped at once, in the same package. 

Each Gems 1 instrument is accompanied by a certificate of quality, which confirms that the instrument meets all the design, manufacturing, finishing, and set up requirements that define the Gems 1 Workshop - Intermediate Student level.

Who did Gliga make this 1/4 intermediate-advanced level violin?

This 1/4 size violin - the Elite model - is a step-up from the traditional Gems 1 line of violin. The wood used for the construction of the Elite series is older, it is dried for a longer period of time and the varnish used to finish these violins is of higher quality. This new line was built for the intermediate/advanced level student who wants to upgrade to an even higher quality instrument. Also, beginning children who maybe play another instrument and have an understanding of music already may wish to start with a high quality instrument. They cab start with a Gems 1 Elite intermediate/advanced 1/4 violin.

The antique finish does not affect the sound of the instruments; it is just a matter of visual beauty. The instruments finished in an antique style have an "old" feel and the color is not uniform along the body, trying to replicate the looks of a violin that was subject to the passage of time.

The combination of woods that is used at the manufacturing of this violin is as follows:

- Solid Carpathian Resonance Spruce (Latin name: Picea Abies (L) Karst) - used for the top plate of the instrument, the bass bar, the blocks, the corner-blocks, the linings, and the sound post.

- Solid Carpathian Flamed Mountain Maple (Latin name: Acer Pseudoplatanus L.) - used for the back plate of the instruments, the neck, the scroll, the peg box, the ribs, the bridge, and sometimes the accessories. 

- Ebony (Latin name: Diospyros sp.) - used for the accessories: fingerboard, pegs, top nut, purfling, chinrest, tailpiece, the saddle, and the end pin.
