History

Fiddleheads' Owner Rhiannon Nachbaur, a symphony violinist and professional violin teacher, works closely with a workshop to produce and further develop the Fiddleheads student violin line. Our instruments are made in the workshop of Master luthier Xuechang Sun in Beijing.

A luthier since the 1960's, Mr. Sun has won many awards including a Gold medal for craftmanship and a Silver medal for tone in cello making at the National Violin Making Competition in China (1987) and a certificate of merit for bass workmanship at the 15th International Violin Society of America (VSA) Competition and Exhibition (2002).

Though Sun's standard workshop line is sold by other shops, the instruments Fiddleheads sells were developed and crafted for Fiddleheads exclusively to meet Rhiannon's high standards and requirements. From the cured and flamed woods to the custom varnish, warm and clear tone and delicate finishing work, it's all been finely honed between Rhiannon and the workshop. Beyond construction, Rhiannon has each instrument lovingly setup by a professional luthier in Canada before she personally checks them over for tone and sends them to each customer.

The Instruments

Fiddleheads commissions the student VN-100 model and an intermediate, antiqued VN-102 model.

VN-100 (Violin)

VA-200 (Viola)

VN-102 (Violin)

VA-202 (Viola)

These instruments provide fantastic value for the money and are highly reviewed by our customers. The tone is fantastic for this price range and warms with play. In fact, Rhiannon is so happy with these violins that her own private lessons students are encouraged to play the VN-100 for their first three or four years playing and the VN-102 is used by our students in their Royal Conservatory 3rd to 7th grade exams.

The instruments are simply far superior to anything else in their respective price ranges and beyond due to our discounted prices.

These workshop-made instruments have slightly (VN-100 / VA-200) to moderately (VN-102 / VA-202) flamed scroll, neck and ribs. The two-piece back is well flamed and the instruments are finished with an oil varnish.

More details on each instrument on their pages: VN-100 - VN-102. Violas are now available in these models as well: VA-200 - VA-202

Both violin models also available in true Left-Handed models: Click here
