  • Good-violin
    Baroque violin with case, 2015, Chinese, after Klotz. $1200

    No bow included, but a bow can be selected from Saraband's current stock if required. The bow in the photo is for demonstration purposes only.

    This violin has very fine wood on the belly, and has the potential to be quite a good instrument. It does need a few changes to setup which any violin maker can do easily.

  • Violin-02
    A student quality Chinese baroque violin (same model as previous violin) is also in stock at Saraband Music. Same specifications, but the wood is of lower quality. Case and instrument cost $800. Again, some refinement to the setup is required, which is easily done by any competent violin repairer.

  • Violin-02-in-case
    Violin 2 in case
  • Baroque-Viola
    Saraband Music also has a student quality Baroque viola in stock. Again, a Chinese copy of a Klotz model. This instrument has had geared pegs fitted for ease of tuning, but still requires minor adjustment to setup. Case and instrument are $1100.
