Advanced/Professional GAMA Violin by Gliga
GAMA violin is a good choice for the advanced professional level.
It is traditional handmade in the workshop of the award-winning violin maker Vasile Gliga, from Reghin, Romania, with almost 40 years of experience, knowledge and confidence to properly offer you the best stringed instruments.
This acoustical instrument is carefully hand crafted from great European tone wood, natural dried, aged at least 12 to 15 years. For the Top of the Professional Gama Violin we use high quality Solid Carpathian Resonance Spruce. The Back, Neck and Sides are carefully handcrafted from the most selected Flamed Solid wood Carpathian Maple.
Gliga Violins is situated on top of the musical instrument industry due to details of workmanship and quality of the Carpathian wood. We are extremely lucky to have born in the middle of Transylvania, in the Gurghiului Mountains where 'Stradivarius of Romania', the Master Luthier Vasile Gliga spent his childhood. The legend says that other famous luthiers from Cremona, the Centre of Excellence for violinmaking for over 300 years, were getting their wood from here.
The violin feature hand inlaid purfling (it helps against cracks).
Regarding the finishing style we prepare our very own recipe of oil-based varnish that it is applied by hand.
The wood for fittings is carefully chosen from exotic hardwood. All accessories that complete the concert fiddle: fingerboard, pegs, tailpiece, chinrest are hand carved from high quality Ebony, in the Gliga's workshops. The fancy pegs with a white pip is a special feature for the Gamas. The tailpiece includes one gold screw-on fine tuner.
The fittings are professionally installed and adjusted to meet or exceed MENC specifications and standards. Once the peg is fitted correctly, we add Peg Paste as a lubricant, so that they turn smoothly. We make sure that the fingerboard has the correct curve. We also check the angle of the neck and we confirm that the bridge height is correct and fitted properly to the curve of the belly of the instrument. We make sure that the strings are firmly in place and we adjust the notes.
The exquisite design of this violin became triumphant with the deep and rich tonal quality. It is no longer a myth that the Master Gliga's violins are bounded in musical magic of the classical instruments. The instrument is meticulously calibrated for optimum sound production. The tone of these violins is rich, resonant, full, deep warm and dark timbre, sonorous, robust and powerful. Professional Gama Concert violin reaches its full potential with a good projection by the instrumentality of Thomastik Dominant Strings.
The Advanced Professional Gama Orchestra violin it comes with a Certificate of Quality that includes the photos of the string instrument, the model and the year when the violin was made, a little description regarding the type of wood and finishing style, and also, the size. Inside there is an authenticity label. This certify that the Master Vasile GLIGA has constantly directly supervised the creation of the instrument.
