4/4 GLIGA Gama Elite Violin - Superior Sound - Code D1399V
Handmade - Superior Workmanship - Oil Finish - Professional Setup - Exceptional Sound - Ready to Play
All Gama Advanced violins are HANDMADE by the best luthiers in Gliga's workshop. Each instrument is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity, which confirms that the instrument meets all the design, manufacturing, finishing, and set up requirements that define the GAMA Professional level. All Gama violins are finished with a special formula of German oil-based varnish, whose elasticity factors have been perfected to allow the fibers of the wood to vibrate freely and produce extraordinary sounds, while ensuring an optimal wood protection.
The Gama Advanced Violins are usually chosen by advanced players, adult amateurs who play the violin as a hobby, orchestra players, and anyone else who wants to own and play a fine violin. The Gama violins are superior to those listed under the Gems 1 level by the wood quality and aesthetic value, manufacturing process, finishing style, and accessories. All these elements are of superior quality, which have a direct influence on the quality of the sound.
