The Hidersine Veracini Violin has been inspected and setup 'ready to play' in our UK service workshops. This means that you can buy with confidence, take your new instrument along to your lesson and be ready to go from the off.
Everyone loves an old, antique violin, viola or cello, and so using clever techniques developed over many years, the Hidersine Veracini is finished with various 'antique' markers. Each instrument is uniquely treated to replicate the appearance of a much-loved and often-played example, with pitting of the body and wear-marks evident across the body.
Hidersine Veracini instruments use seasoned maple for the bridge of each violin. The use of 'seasoned' tonewoods in musical instrument manufacture is well known. When a tonewood, such as maple, has been seasoned, it infers that the timber has been stored in a controlled environment for a reasonable period. The exact time can vary, but instrument luthiers will pay a premium for wood that has seasoned for 5, 10, 20 or more years. When wood is initially harvested, it has a high moisture content, which over time will dissipate. This lowering of moisture content is one of the most important parts of the seasoning process, and as the wood is formed into its new (bridge) shape, it brings with it a new natural state for the material. One in which the wood fibres settle into a more coherent whole and will transmit vibration and resonance more effectively. Therefore, the string vibrations are carried through the bridge to the sound-table more authentically, which will result in further improvement of the tone of your violin, viola or cello.
Hidersine Veracini instruments feature a hand-carved solid spruce top – or sound-table. This is important because your instrument's primary voice is formed by this sound-table, and therefore the top can resonate as a single, coherent structure and sound great as a result. Plus, as the wood ages and the solid tonewood top gradually relaxes at a cellular level into its natural rest state, it will resonate even more naturally, and the sound will improve further.
Hidersine Veracini Violins and Cellos not only have solid tops, but they also have beautiful solid, flamed Maple ribs and backs too. These highly figured, solid tonewood sections further enhance the instrument's natural tone. The top produces the instrument's primary voice, and the back and sides add the character.
Hidersine Veracini violins and cellos both benefit from a genuine Ebony fingerboard, pegs and chin rest. This prized hardwood has traditionally been used for hundreds of years due to its truly long-lasting properties. Unlike dark-stained or 'ebonized' softwoods often used on inferior instruments, genuine Ebony will not mark, pit or wear out under lengthy playing periods. This is essential in areas such as the pegs, which are under a lot of tension from the strings. The shaft of each peg needs to be retain its integrity, and using Ebony is one of the best ways to ensure this. Ebony should remain structurally sound for a very long time, and it will also feel smooth on the fingers and chin, helping make the playing experience more pleasant all round.
