ORION OVL800 4/4 Size Violin Outfit
The violin that offers both aesthetic beauty and rich tonal clarity. This series offers an incredibly balanced tone on both the bass and treble end, allowing the artist to play expressively with minimal interruptions.
12 year solid maple
a fresh set of quality strings make a world of difference to the tone, which is why our violins are fitted with either the Pirastro Evah Pirazzi or the Thomastik Dominant 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.
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
a well balanced and durable lightweight bow to compliment the B series violins
Each OVL800 violin is individually assembled, set up, and inspected by our experienced luthiers before the instrument is sent away.
