VASILE takes care of maestro quality instruments - finished
with oil varnish.
The maestro instruments come with their own certificate of
authenticity that contains the data (pictures, size, material,
model, label signed by Vasile Gliga himself) of the instrument.
The most beautiful wood is reserved for the maestro. Gliga
"extra" instruments are those instruments that have a one
piece back or those that are made by special wood.
All instruments are handmade and very
carefully finished. We make all our instruments using Stradivari
design. We also make 4/4 size violin Guarneri model. The Guarneri
model violin has a more powerful sound because it has the
body bigger than the Stradivari model and the volume of air
inside of instrument is bigger and the fibers of the wood
vibrate stronger. The shape of "F" holes is also different.
You can see this difference if you study carefully the top
of a Guarneri and of a Stradivari violin on our web site.
The sound is also different at the two types of instruments.
We finish the instruments in an antiqued
style or normal finish. The antiqued instruments are also
new instruments but they are only finished in an antiqued
style (In other words, they are new instruments but they look
old. It is only about the visual beauty; the fact that a violin
is finished in an antiqued style or not does not influence
the sound of the instrument).
All our instruments are new, never played
