Stentor 'The Arcadia' Violin
The Stentor Arcadia is the top of Stentor's range of high-grade orchestral models.
These are superb handcrafted instruments, carved from the most select, highly figured tonewoods.
Made in a specialist hand workshop within the Stentor factory, where the most skilled individual workers produce under the close supervision of a master maker, the Arcadia is a product from a traditional luthier's environment that would be familiar to makers throughout the centuries.
The superior sound is unique to each instrument and reflects the individuality of each one. The violin is finished with a hand-applied traditional shellac varnish and fitted with Pirastro strings.
All instruments are individually workshop fitted, and set up in store prior to despatch.
