The Louis Keller is an excellent choice for an advancing beginner, an intermediate student or amature player on a budget who wants an instrument that performs. The instrument is constructed with a spruce top, flamed maple back and sides, ebony pegs and fingerboard. LA Violin Shop luthiers hone and fit the ebony pegs for stable tuning, inspect and plane the fingerboard for ease of play, carve and fit Aubert Luxe bridge, install Wittner finetune tailpiece and Dominant strings, and make all final adjustments. Varnish is a light burnt umber over a golden base, had-rubbed with a tasteful amount of antiquing. This results in a violin that has a fine, nuanced sound perfect for orchestra, small ensemble, or solo playing. Available in 4/4, 7/8, 3/4, and 1/2 sizes.
