Lefty Violins

Back to VN-100 and VN-102 Violins

Back to Violins for Sale

Fiddleheads carries rare left-handed violins from the workshop of an award-winning maker in Beijing, make exclusively for Fiddleheads.

Above, the left-handed VN-102 Violin

Fiddleheads carries the VN-100 and VN-102 in a Left-handed model!

The VN-100 and VN-102, as described here and in customer testimonials, are now available to our customers needing a rare true left-handed model. (More notes on left-handed violins here.)

What's the difference between a true left-handed violin and one strung backwards? The inner workings of a violin, like the bass bar, soundpost and the way in which the plates are carved, are what support the various frequencies and give a violin the best tone.

So a violin with the strings reversed without being MADE to play left-handed is like rewiring your stereo to put low frequencies through the tweeters and the high end through bass woofers. The sound is no good, not to mention the right-handed angle of the neck makes playing more difficult.

These true left-handed violins are just like the regular VN-100 and VN-102 violins, but made from scratch specifically for left-handed players. Reversed bass bar and soundpost, reversed chin rest, reversed strings/pegs/bridge and neck angle all make for a custom instrument without a custom price tag.

Both models are setup with Dominant strings. Outfits include the standard VN-25 bow, economy case and rosin (combined value $175+) for only $100 more.

**Note: Left-handed people do not have to purchase a left-handed violin. We offer lefty violins for people who, usually due to physiological reasons (nerve damage, missing digits, damage from stroke, limited wrist rotation, etc), cannot play violin the traditional way, with violin in left hand and bow in right hand. Remember that many, many musicians are left-handed and play the violin the usual way just fine. There are countless examples of lefty musicians, and they almost always play the usual way unless they, by accident, picked it up and played backwards because they didn’t have formal instruction. More notes on left-handed violins here.
