    Full description

    The woods chosen for this violin, both maple and spruce, were hand-cut by the makers about 20 years ago in the forests of Switzerland. The top is of medium grain and the back presents narrow to medium flames, with pronounced annual rings.
    "With this instrument, we have created a variant with accessories made of domestic wood, which makes it sustainable and unique. They were all mane inside of our workshop and the wood comes from Switzerland. It is high-density spruce that has a much higher sound velocity and hardness than ebony. This makes the instrument richer in overtones, and faster in response." Bernd and Daniel Hiller
