Built on a 14-1/2 inch viola body, the 5Star Artist Fiddle offers exceptional performance and looks for the price. The scale is a little longer than a violin, but the sound is worth it. KRUTZ 5Star Artist Fiddles are partially crafted in our affiliated private shop in Beijing from Asian wood. These instruments are shipped to our Kansas City workshop rough and unfinished, where professional craftsmen do extensive finish work on them. The instruments are graduated, fitted with an advanced bassbar and varnished. 5Star Artist Fiddles have greater projection and tonal resonance, suitable for advancing students and amateur adult players.
