The workmanship of Svencino violas is what make then different from the ‘usual’ shelf pick-n-dash editions mostly available. Each one is prepared and finished as though they are master instruments make by a luthier in Cremona, Italy a few hundred years ago. The approach and intent is the same.
The difference is that it is a collaboration between chosen Chinese makers, who action the first part, allowing us the space for art, finish and sound adjustments. Of course, Most importantly! Oil varnished, just like old Italians would have it.
Our exception to Oil finishes is the Svencino I range which is Spirit varnished in a more Franco Germanic traditions. Naturally we see to a finessed setup and regulation and our choice house strings.
A direct competitor to locally found mid entry level violins without sounding like cat.
The Svencino range was created as an alternative to poor quality instruments that have become the norm in South Africa. Of course, not all instruments available are of poor quality but the trend is there.
There are three main categories: Svencino I, II & III … each level from I to III is priced according to time spent, materials used, fittings, strings and level of finishing involved. For more detail you can read more about it in the blog.
