    If you are on a bit of a tight budget but still want a good looking, well-made instrument with an absolutely huge-stonking sound, and you want to be dead easy to play, then this fairly large bodied “Amati” model could be exactly what you are looking for. Just take a look at the beautifully flamed Bosnian maple that has been used to construct the back, ribs and scroll. Just take a look at the high-quality, fine-grained Balkan spruce that has been used to construct the table. Admire the warm red-orange spirit varnish that coats and enhances the flame of the instrument. Marvel at the quality of the fittings which include a dense-grained black ebony fingerboard, a Despiau C6 bridge, a handmade brass endpin unit, some Thomastic Belcanto strings and a particularly expensive set of brass machines that have been sourced from Rubner in Germany. Next, consider how advantageous the 105.2cm string length will be for your playing and add in a truly large and tonally-rich sound.

    We think that all these superlatives add up to exceptional value for money.
