Combining fine artwork and highly skilled luthier craft makes the OVL200 violin. The 200 Series carries a beautifully crafted spruce and maple wood, marked with subtle aging features and light gloss finish. Thoughts were initially directed to suit violinists from high-school to tertiary-education students looking at playing expressively, at an affordable price.

5 year solid maple
Quality steel strings

a fresh set of quality strings make a world of difference to the tone, which is why our violins are fitted with the Pirastro Piranito strings*.

Carved and fitted bridge

a bridge is responsible for transmitting the vibration of the strings to the body of the violin. Each bridge must have the right thickness, angle, height and curvature.

Precision soundpost set-up

not only does the soundpost provide structural support, it also allows vibration to be passed between the top and back plates. 

Hand-carved pegs
Adjusted nut height and curvature

shaped to fit each individual violin for ease of tuning and to prevent pegs slipping

to make playing comfortable with a lower action, especially in the higher registers


Our instruments are looked after by a lifetime of free unlimited servicing to maintain the quality of the instruments.

Each OVL210 is individually assembled, set up, and inspected by our experienced luthiers before the instrument is in your hands.
