  • More Info

Carlo Robelli has always featured instruments of unmatched quality, now upgrade to a hand carved instrument with a beginner level price tag.

Carlo Robelli's RV505 violins come from a small shop where quality prevails over quantity.  What sets them apart is the amount of time and handwork that goes into carving each individual instrument. It is visible on the outside in the clean workmanship and the hand varnish. What can’t be seen is the hand grading on the inside which gives this violin exceptional tonal quality that is unmatched in comparably priced instruments. The RV505 includes a Brazilwood horsehair octagonal bow and deluxe velour-lined case with lots of storage space for accessories and bows.

        For the beginner or musician on a budget this instrument is right up your alley. Extremely playability and the tone is quite good. However tone is all about the fingers my friends!

          Comments about Carlo Robelli RV505 Hand Carved Violin:

          The violin is easy to tune and is easy to hold the tuning. It has a clear and vibrant sound and the solid top spruce wood and ebony neck allows it to be durable and long lasting.
          It comes with a hard case outlined with upholstery, a wooden bow made with horse hair and rosin. The included case is a luxurious touch to a fine instrument.

            Comments about Carlo Robelli RV505 Hand Carved Violin:

            Was looking for a hand carved violin to take me to the next level, so I settled on this Carlo Robelli. It plays great, much better then the starter violin I've been playing on for years, and was a great upgrade for me. I feel like this will last me well beyond what it should for the price before I would need to buy a higher end one, which I don't think I'd ever need. Gives me the sound and performance I was looking for, very happy with it!

              Comments about Carlo Robelli RV505 Hand Carved Violin:

              This is one of Carlo Robelli's more expensive student options, but the price tag is definitely worth it. Not only does it tune and stay in tune much easier, but it also comes with an upgraded set of strings. The hand carved design gives it a higher attention to detail and the result is a balanced and full tone across all registers. I would recommend this for any beginning or advancing violin student.

                    This is an excellent violin, especially for the incredible price. I've played multiple versions and the quality is always fantastic. They resonate very well and sound great. There is always a slight variance between each one, as they are hand crafted. Even with the personal character of each individual violin, they all are made with care to ensure a high quality violin. The included case is a luxurious touch to a fine instrument.
