The Stentor II violin has been recommended by teachers worldwide as a good entry level violin. Known for its build quality, solid tonewoods and built in Stentor’s own workshop, the violin produces a responsive and rich sound.
Before the violin leaves us, we set up the violin to a professional standard. We fit the pegs correctly, adjust the string height and fit the bridge accurately making the violin easier to tune and play.
The factory fitted strings are up-graded to D’Addario Ascenté (RRP £29.50) increasing the depth of tone and tuning stability.
