The perfect companion for getting started
The Stentor Student II violin is the ideal instrument for students who want to kick-start their violin career with a high-quality instrument. The Stentor violin is carefully crafted by hand from various solid woods, so that each individual instrument is unique. The body and neck of the instrument are made of maple, the top from spruce, and the tuning pegs and fingerboard are both made of ebony, while the chinrest is crafted using hardwood. The result of this fine selection is a very well-defined sound that radiates depth and warmth. To simplify tuning, the tailpiece, which is made of a composite material, has four fine-tuners. The included wooden bow is strung with carefully selected natural horsehair that converges on an ebony frog. In combination with the supplied gig bag, this instrument is the perfect partner for entering the wonderful world of violin music.
A focus on quality
The tonewoods that form the basis of instrument making are dried for at least three years before being processed to ensure quality, stability, and above all a great sound. Stentor uses only natural adhesives to glue its many components, so that repairs can be carried out without hassle in the future - artificial adhesives cannot normally be removed in a precise manner. During production, all individual parts are marked, sawn to size, planed, and glued by hand. In order to guarantee the tonal quality of the final product, the thickness and quality of the material are re-measured repeatedly at numerous positions and at various stages of the manufacturing process.
Sometimes size does matter
Thanks to its great sound, excellent manufacturing quality, and size, the Stentor Student II 4/4 violin is not only suitable for beginners. It is also recommended to all those who have "outgrown" the instrument they have been using up to now. Usually, it is suitable for players over 1.50m tall or with an arm length of at least 60cm (if in doubt, ask an experienced violinist for a personal assessment). This violin comes with everything you need (bow and gig bag with separate material compartment), which makes it particularly interesting for price-conscious yet ambitious (aspiring) violinists.
Stentor is a UK-based world leading manufacturer of stringed instruments. Thanks to their easy playability and good sound, Stentor violins, violas, cellos, and double basses are widely recommended to their students by music schools and instrument teachers everywhere. The product range extends from beginner to professional-level instruments. For more than five decades, Stentor’s violin makers have been continuously developing and improving their instruments and have always consulted music teachers while doing so. And their success cannot be ignored: Over half a million musicians began their musical careers with a Stentor instrument.
"I can do more than Classical music!"
The rumour that the violin is an instrument only suitable for Classical music has been outdated ever since David Garrett hit the stage. The violin, needless to say, originated in a time long before the invention of musicals and film music - but that is exactly where it fits in perfectly nowadays, just as much as it does in chamber music, in the orchestra, in folk and dance music and, of course, as a solo instrument! As it has had a major influence on the development of many of these musical genres (and still does), there is a great deal of literature dedicated to it. With this Stentor violin set, the gates to the world of violin music are wide open.
