This superb 3/4 violin pack is the perfect starter instrument for children aged between 8 and 12. Complete with bow, case, stand with a bag, a chinrest, spare strings and rosin block this pack contains all the essentials. Whilst this is a modestly priced package, we believe that young players should be able to flourish on a capable instrument. To that end, this Stagg violin features a beautifully finished solid spruce top with maple back and sides, black binding and a smooth jujube fingerboard.
Made for comfort
When learning to play a new instrument it's paramount that comfort is at the forefront of design, allowing the player to focus on technique. The Stagg violin provides this thanks to its lightweight structure. Spruce and maple tonewoods have been carefully selected and then pressed so that the timbre is expressive whilst keeping weight down to a minimum. In addition, a foam padded shoulder rest has been provided so that positioning is made nice and easy whilst eliminating any shoulder discomfort completely.
To complement the body the Stagg violin makes use of a smooth, rounded maple neck garnished with a jujube fingerboard that has been ebonized to match the accurate and traditionally shaped tuning pegs. Atop the headstock is a beautifully finished traditional swirl completing the overall classic look.
Everything you need
The Stagg Beginner Three Quarter Size Violin provides everything you need for a player to start their practice. A custom-sized robust Stagg case complete with carry-straps, a plush interior lining and accessory pockets makes transport and storage safer whilst keeping the finish of the violin clean and protected. An internal compartment houses the included rosin and spare set of strings whilst the outside of the case has a small zip-pocket - ideal for the included shoulder rest. The rounded, lightweight bow with horsehair is also catered for inside the case and can be fastened safely into place to keep it safe and clean.
Sheet music will be an integral ingredient of lesson and practice time so we have also included an adjustable, smart black music stand. The height and angle can be very easily adjusted for the player to maximise comfort whilst the lightweight design makes it very easy to transport in its own black nylon bag complete with a zip and carry handles.
To ensure that the Stagg Beginner Three Quarter Size Violin With Accessories arrives safely with you and in pristine condition, there are a couple of simple steps to follow to make the violin ready to play:
1. Tuning pegs: The pegs will be in place and the strings attached. Turn the tuning pegs to tighten the strings so that they are close to the note you need to tune them to (Left to right: G, D, A, E). Once you are near tuning, push the pegs inwards to tighten and then use a tuner to get the notes 100% accurate.
2. The bow: The horsehair strings on the bow have been loosened for safety during transit. On the handle of the bow, you will see a hexagonal nut, turn this clockwise until the wooden length of the bow is close to being straight but with a very slight curve. Once done, rub the rosin on a rough surface or scrape with a knife so that it becomes white and rough and then apply this a couple of times to the hair of the bow.
With that complete, you are now ready to begin your first steps into the world of the violin - your Orchestra awaits.
