    Product Description

    Mezzoforte Carbon Fiber Violin-**Please enquire the availability

    People are surprised that a material other than wood can sound this great.  Mezzo-forte carbon fiber violins have a sound that is warm and brilliant.  The projection is amazing and the playability makes higher positions very comfortable.  They also rarely have wolf notes.

    Mezzoforte began developing carbon fiber violins in 2009 after having great success with their carbon fiber bows. This involved technical construction,  molding and experimenting with sound.  After three years, they completed development of the violin in late 2011. These violins are fully manufactured in Germany and set up in the Mezzoforte workshop by an experienced luthier.  They are tested rigorously prior to being sold.

    Each instrument comes with a certificate of authenticity and a unique serial number to make them easy to identify.

    In 2015, Mezzoforte's carbon fiber violin came first at a German musical instrument awards -the Deutschen Musikinstrumentpries.  The annual competition recognises excellence in contempory instrument making in Germany.  The instruments were compared in blind tests to evaluate their sound quality and acoustic performace and then detailed examination of the craftmanship and the ratio of price to performance.

    The beauty of this carbon fiber violin is its accessible price in comparison to the wooden violin that came second in these awards.  The Guarneri replica made by highly decorated lutier Andreas Haensel  was valued at $20,000 USD.

    Making an instrument from carbon fiber has other advantages:

    • They are not affected by climate changes such as humidity or temperature
    • Carbon fiber is strong and stable
    • They are striking in appearance
    • Ideal for travelling and playing outside
