Product Description

 Ships in 2 to 5 days from order, depending on your custom setup specification.

This is a really nice violin, a slight step up (and costs a few hundred bucks more) from the lovely Karl Willhelm Model 55 (also made by Heinrich Gill). It is a completely German-made (Bubenreuth) instrument with moderately flamed maple back and a nice close-grained European spruce top. Outstanding German craftsmanship and attention to detail, combined with a pretty good, if not master level, spirit varnish, have a lot to do with the top reputation that this instrument has earned in a very crowded field of competitors.

In Heinrich Gill's marketing literature, the No. 54 is called a "student" violin. This is a German to English translation issue that could be confusing. The "student" in Gill's literature would refer to a conservatory student; therefore, in the U.S. it would be called a "conservatory level" violin. In any case, the lower end of high-dollar violins like the No. 54 make outstanding professional-level fiddles.

The Violin No. 54, as supplied by Heinrich Gill, has a rather ordinary polycarbonate tailpiece and plain black ebony tuning pegs. While there is some variation in the supplied stringing, Thomastik Dominants are the usual strings used. We recommend a more robust and dark-sounding string, particularly the Thomastik-Infeld Vision stark (heavy) gauge…same string maker as the Dominants.

Note: This instrument has proven to be a great platform for set up as a performance level fiddle.
