This model delivers a resonant, full and carrying tone and is particularly suited for demanding musicians and solo performers. The surface is treated with open pore violin lacquer of particularly high quality and, at an extra charge, this model can be ordered with highly polished shellac hand finishing. The lyre body can be made of the following woods: maple, ash, cherry, elm or pear, and is available in 1st class wood or in simple textured wood.
