Presenting the Cremona SV-130BU Premier Novice Violin Outfit

Saga has always been a pioneer when it comes to making quality violins to meet the demands of the growing student market. While focusing primarily on quality and value to meet a specific price point, the SV-130 Cremona Premier Novice Series violin was developed. Whether the student is in the earliest stages of the learning process, or well on the way to more advanced training, these violins will perform well beyond the expectation.

Traditional Look

Distinctive Design
Wood Selection

Just because a violin is affordable and positioned toward the most beginning of students on a limited budget, it doesn’t mean that quality and tone need be sacrificed. Similar to the models in our Premier Student Series, quality tonewoods were again selected for their sound qualities and relative visual beauty, leaning more toward affordability.


Even at this level, we adhere strictly to traditional design and construction specifications by hand carving and graduating each instrument one at a time. As a result, these instruments will perform flawlessly, consistently, and make the learning process more fun. A warm translucent brown or red finish is carefully applied to these instruments making them appear to be of a much higher level. Sparkle solid color finishes are also available in select models.

Selected to make playing and tunability more accurate, as well as to keep the overall costs down, our finest hardwood fittings assure that every instrument has that traditional look and performs flawlessly—surpassing all other competitive products at this price point.


Each Novice outfit comes with a top-quality shaped, lightweight and durable foam case for ease of transport, protection, and a quality Anton Breton bow.
