Our shop offers you to buy all quality levels of instruments for any playing level, from the best student instrument for beginner to the professional fiddles handmade by the talented Romanian violin maker Luthier Dr. Gliga Vasile in Reghin, Romania.
Gliga instruments are played in many famous orchestras around the world, and are well appreciated and recommended by music teachers and instructors.
We want to offer you a beautiful sounding new violin that equals the value of a vintage model at a fraction of the cost. Gliga instruments are handcarved from the same Carpathian spruce and flamed maple found in the "Italian Valley" of the Transylvania forests that ancient violin makers used for their now priceless pieces. Employing an old Romanian family tradition with sophisticated finishing techniques and modern tools, Vasile Gliga imbues each instrument with his personal passion for the art of violin making.
For those who prefer the aesthetic look of an aged instrument, Gliga also offers antiqued violins with a finish that resembles a vintage model without any compromise in sound quality. The majority of Gliga violins are based on the Guarnerius and Stradivarius violin designs with the former having a bigger body that resonates with a more powerful sound. The Guarneri style is best suited for country music and the Stradivari for classical compositions.
If you are among those who want more than just a traditional 4/4 violin make sure you check out our wide range of sizes, colors, and artistic designs all pictured exactly as you will receive them. Some of our unique items include pyrographed, fine rare art, 5-string, electric, and left-handed instruments as well as whimsical gift items like our carved musical-theme wooden statues. Plus all of Gliga instruments can be purchased with an instrument outfit that includes essential accessories like a violin case, bows, musical stands, strings, tailpieces, and more.
