ORION OVL500AT Antique 4/4 Size Violin Outfit

A true companion that will last you a lifetime. The ORION OVL500 series is a violin that the player will not outgrow in just a few years. As the 500 Series have a full solid body, they age and grow to sound even better over the years! Maybe they'll last a generation...or two.

10 year solid maple
Quality 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 Tonica*

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 & 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 OVL500 violin is individually assembled, set up, and inspected by our experienced luthiers before the instrument is sent away.​


ORION's professional String Instrument Setup includes:



shaping and fitting pegs

shaping the fingerboard and nut to professional curvature

fitting and adjusting the soundpost
