Sonic HERITAGE SERIES
Electro Acoustic - £1895
Fine Italian copies in Stradivari or Guarneri design.
These violins are made in the workshop of Xueping Hu. Xueping was awarded the certificate of merit for tone at the Violin Society of America 2006. These instruments are produced with conservatoire and professional players in mind and possess a detailed and sensitive tone.
The tonewoods used are carefully selected; the spruce is from the Dolomite region of the Italian Alps and the European maple from Bosnian. The wood is naturally dried for 4 years before being placed in a traditional drying room.
The varnishing on these instruments has been specifically developed to resemble that of the Old Italian instruments from the early 18th century.
The Sonic Heritage Series are among the finest examples of modern violin making available today and represent excellent value at this level.
From 2011 this model is now fitted with the "Delux" transducer bridge. The principle is identical to the standard bridge described in "Pick-Up System" the difference being that the bridge is assembled as one piece, this construction method allows the foot of the bridge to reduced in width to that of a standard acoustic bridge thus retaining the finest details of the acoustic tone.
(The "Delux" bridge can be specified on other Sonic models at an additional cost of £60)
