The Sonic Heritage (available for trial on a request basis) Price from £1,850.00

is made in the workshop of Xueping Hu. They are fine Italian copies avaiable in Stradivari or Guarneri design for violins and Guadagnini or Maggini designs for viola. Xueping Hu was awarded the certificate of merit for tone at the Violin Society of America 2006. These instruments are produced with conservatoire and professional players in mind and possess a detailed and sensitive tone.

The tonewoods used are carefully selected; the spruce is from the Dolomite region of the Italian Alps and the European maple from Bosnia. The wood is naturally dried for 4 years before being placed in a traditional drying room.

The oil varnishing on these instruments has been specifically developed to resemble that of the Old Italian instruments from the early 18th century.

The Sonic Heritage Series are among the finest examples of modern violin making available today and represent excellent value at this level. These instrument find favour with those looking for the ultimate amplified sound as well as superb acoustic tone and projection. As acoustic instruments they fit comfortably into orchestral and conservatoir settings.

The electro acoustic model is fitted with the "Delux" transducer bridge
