Traditional Look

Distinctive Design
Wood Selection

Price often plays a huge role in the decision process when the parent, teacher or student, decides what instrument to purchase. As a result, we made it a point to combine the best quality tone woods possible; without sacrificing tone or playability.


Similar to our highest-level violin outfits, each Premier Student Violin is hand-carved and graduated to achieve the best, most balanced tone possible. This attention to detail is applied to these instruments knowing that a student’s continuing on with the learning process is dependent upon how easy the instrument plays and how good it sounds. The finishes of Premier Student instruments range from a warm translucent brown and red to a more antique brown, and applied in multiple, thin coats to not only protect the wood, but also maintain a beautiful, traditional look. Even the necks are oiled for an unsurpassed feel for the player.

Fingerboard and Fittings

Traditional shaped hardwood fittings of boxwood and ebony are used to assure proper intonation and an ease of playability that all players deserve—especially the beginner. For the fingerboards, we use quality ebony for its stability and smooth playability. All features combine to create an instrument that not only has professional features, but is amazingly affordable, too.


Our highly acclaimed Travelite TL-33 lightweight case is included with each full-size Violin Outfit; while the Featherweight C-3905 is paired with fractional sizes. High-quality J. LaSalle LB-13 Brazilwood bow and high quality D’addario Prelude strings make these outfits the best values on market today.
