Performance Violins

 

What is a "Performance Level" violin? Many stores will use other terms such as Intermediate, Professional, Hand-Made, Top of the Line, etc... The problem is that it is not the violin that dictates what is Professional. All of those terms are more accurate when describing the player. For instance, a professional player can make ANY violin, regardless of its level and price, sound like a professional instrument. Likewise, a student will make even the $10,000 violins sound like a student instrument.

Performance violins are where most players should be looking when they are buying an instrument. These are typically more in the Intermediate price range but offer hand-craftsmanship and play like upper end violins. These are ideal for the high school player as well as the adult hobbyist. We do not keep just any model in this range. In fact, we keep only a small few as we think that the ones we carry are the best that are available on the current market.

Scott Cao 850

The 850 Series instruments are identical to the 750 with the one exception being the maple. The 850 series uses European (Bosnian) Maple for the Back and Sides.

We only keep 850 models when they play noticeably better then the 750. We do this because we do not believe that a violin should be more expensive "just because". We believe that if it is more expensive, then it should be a better playing instrument.
