Just like the CV500 violin, the CA500 has many upgraded features and has the economical price you expect from this shop. This is a fully hand-carved instrument finished in a warm, hand-rubbed oil varnish. This adds to its natural beauty as well as its tonal qualities. All tonewood is well-aged, figured, and flamed. The fittings and accessories are all premium ebony. The pegs have Parisian eyes. This instrument has a full, big sound and is easy to play.
