Get the best start you can
When you’re starting out on an unknown journey, such as learning a new musical instrument, it’s understandably tempting to go for the very cheapest option possible ‘just to see how it goes’. But, deep down we all know that it’s not actually the best idea.
Having a proper instrument on which to start learning will undoubtedly help you or your child get the very best results possible. If you have an instrument that hasn’t been set up properly, or one that hasn’t been built as well as it should, no matter how much practise you do, it isn’t going to sound any better.
Built to withstand the rigours of school, while still sounding great:
Made with a laminated Spruce top and Maple back and sides, the Hidersine Inizio violin is made with strength and resilience in mind.
Perfect for the often long and arduous journeys to and from school or music lessons. The included, shaped Styrofoam case aids the instrument’s protection greatly, and can help withstand the rigours of the school bus!
Complete with everything you need:
Your Inizio violin is supplied as an outfit, which is to say it is complete with what you need to get started.
The violin itself will be supplied with strings, and with the bridge in the ‘down’ position. This means that you need to either ask the teacher to set the bridge for you, or ideally, ask us to set the bridge for you. Then if you have any questions in the future, you can always ask us and we'll gladly help you out.
Also included is a Styrofoam, shaped case with space inside for a couple of accessories. The case will have a zipped opening and a comfy handle too.
Most importantly, your Inizio violin set for student also includes a Brazilwood bow, without which no sound is possible. Just tighten the hair, apply a little rosin, and the bow is ready to play… as you will be too.
The HIDERSINE Company:
The company was founded in 1890 and has since been the go-to company of bowed instrument maintenance and care.
The company really made their mark in this specialist market when they introduced Amy Birch’s ‘AB’ Rosin in 1970 and the legendary W.E.Hill & Sons’ rosins in the 1980’s.
Hidersine Bowed Instruments round up all of the years of working with instrument luthiers, learning what is required by players at all the different levels of development. Gained from the years of work are the ESTA-chosen (European String Teachers Association), entry-level Vivente student outfit, the advanced Piacenza student outfit, and the degree students’ choice, the Veracini, plus many finer instruments.
These instruments led Hidersine to develop the Hidersine Reserve range of one-off instruments for the connoisseur. Hand selected violins and cellos from workshops across Asia that shows off both a great value and exceptional craftsmanship.
Laminated Spruce top and Maple Back and Sides: Built strong, for the rigours of the school bus.
Tailpiece Fine-Tune Adjusters: Making tuning that little bit easier, the tailpiece adjusters help early players get in tune and stay in tune more quickly.
Complete with everything you need: To make it as easy as possible, the Hidersine Inizio Violin Outfit is complete with a brazilwood bow and Hidersine case.
