The Oxford 4/4 Violin Boxwood #OVB-1 is a full-size violin with a hand-carved, solid spruce top and solid maple back, sides, and neck. Spruce is an ideal wood for the top of a violin since it is lightweight, longitudinally strong, and laterally flexible. It has a chinrest & pegs, and even a boxwood fine tuner tailpiece, so you will always sound impeccably in-tune. The Oxford 4/4 Violin Boxwood #OVB-1 also has an ebony fingerboard for a slick, fast playing quality. Your instrument looks striking with inlaid purfling. This violin also includes a feather weight case, so you can easily transport your instrument, without any unnecessary bulk. Also included is a Mongolian horsehair bow, for playing with good grip and smooth tone.
