Carlo Robelli 805 series violins are crafted in China by German-trained master luthiers, right down to the very varnishes!

The V805 violin represents Carlo Robelli's cream of the crop, each one uniquely constructed from the finest of European spruces. Each of these instruments are meticulously crafted in China by German-trained master luthiers, right down to the very varnishes! Apart from the spruce body, this model features a maple neck with a superior feel. Additional high-grade appointments include ebony fingerboard, pegs and fittings, Aubert bridge, fine tuner, Parisian eye on the tailpiece, and deluxe chin rest. It's strung with Thomastik strings for superb playability right out of the packaging! Carlo Robelli 805 Violins include a Brazilwood horsehair octagonal bow and deluxe velour-lined case with lots of storage space for accessories and two bows.

Each of these unique masterpieces is played and approved by members of the Beijing Philharmonic Orchestra before shipment to ensure you are receiving an instrument of top quality and professional tone.

In 1932, Sam Ash - violinist, restorer, teacher and music store owner - saw the need for imported violins. His growing following of violin teachers and players were largely dissatisfied with the quality of the available violin brands. Sam began to cultivate violin-making relationships with small shops whose craftsmen shared his appreciation for quality workmanship. Seventy years later, his sons and grandsons have continued the same philosophy. Today, we bring you outstanding values from Germany, Romania, the Czech Republic and China. Each is an exceptional value in its price range, and all are sold with a one-year warranty and thirty-day money-back guarantee - proof of our dedication to quality assurance.

    Comments about Carlo Robelli V805 Select Handmade Full Size Violin Outfit:

    Needed a nice new violin outfit for my niece for school, I was recommended the Carlo Robelli's by the school's band director. Wanting to get her something nice that wouldn't need an upgrade by next school season (she's really into it and I want to encourage her) I chose this outfit. The look alone was really striking to me, love the natural woods and they really pop when she's in practice. She really loves it, the feel is perfect for her and everyone in her band is so jealous of her, she's so happy!

        Comments about Carlo Robelli V805 Select Handmade Full Size Violin Outfit:

        I feel these violins are crafted very well. The feel of the neck is very comfortable, and makes for excellent playability. Huge projection from the violin that resonates for days. The peg box and tuning pegs are great, instrument holds tune very well. Comes with a great heavy duty case with plenty of storage.

            This violin has a superior craftsmanship that you don't find too often in instruments of this price. It's a breeze to tune and holds its tuning much better than your typical student or intermediate level instrument. The spruce body and maple/ebony parts give the violin a very full, vibrant tone that could fill an entire room. Any advancing student or seasoned player looking for an affordable option would love this violin.

                          I've been an experienced violinist and this is one of my favorite violins. The ebony fret board makes gliding from note to note seamless in sound. The spruce body has a big sound when going into those big parts. This is a real hands on product review from Ken at Sam Ash Music in New Haven

                            These violins are excellent. They are also an incredible value for such a finely hand crafted instrument. The resonance and tone is fantastic as well as the attention to detail. This instrument is made with care with choice selected wood to ensure that each violin sounds as good as possible. The addition of ebony appointments is another excellent feature included with this quality instrument.

                              Comments about Carlo Robelli V805 Select Handmade Full Size Violin Outfit:

                              This is a high quality violin made by Carlo Robelli. This is the 805 series, handmade with a solid spruce body. The craftsmanship is excellent from the seams and sides of the violin to the F hole and the inner workings and tone post. The sound produced is also very resonant and full. The violin is very easy to tune and the pegs don't slip or unwind easily, allowing the violin to stay in tune for long periods of time.
                              Overall, this violin is a great choice for someone looking to buy their first violin they want to last for a long time, or for an advanced player looking to upgrade to a violin with great sound sound quality and durability.
