Bellissima Strings Violin labelBellissima Strings Violins

An exclusive line of affordable quality violins developed by a symphony violinist and teacher for dedicated students and amateurs.

Read Bellissima Violin Reviews from Customers

The demand for quality instruments at a low price has never been stronger than in recent months. Players seek the best instruments possible and are not willing, or able, to pay ridiculous prices to get them.

Thankfully the Chinese violin world, through inovations and years of masterful training, has turned old stereotypes up-side-down and now offers some of the best instruments in the world.

Beautifully antiqued violin  

The antiqued models are incredibly convincing and quite lovely.

Each instrument is setup in Canada and upgraded with Dominant strings, Aubert 3-star bridge and other custom adjustments.

Bellissima violins, some with 1-piece backs, feature stunning flame with optical debth.

 

However, one still must be highly cautious in selecting an instrument from China. Amongst the "duds" are rare gems yet to be discovered.

Thus Fiddleheads owner Rhiannon Nachbaur spent over three years working with makers throughout China to develop a unique line that would suit her exceptionally high expectations. She sought an instrument to please both her roles:

    1. As a classical violinist she desired fantastic sound and playability with appropriate tonal variation from one model to the next to please a wide spectrum of tastes
    2. As a shop owner she required a well-constructed violin which would simulateanously offer the absolute best value to her customers and maintain the business' reputation.

The final result was the Bellissima Strings label, which is Italiano for "beautiful," and it is indeed a beautiful family of violins. The dedicate student/amateur level label was introduced to our customers in January 2009.

These beautfully antiqued, handmade workshop instruments are made in Shanghai exclusively for Fiddleheads. Each violin is meticulously setup in Canada with upgraded Dominant strings, bridge, post, and fittings. Quality control is strict and the line is having new models added each year

Instruments which do make the final cut are then played and uniquely named by Rhiannon personally to suit the instrument's musical and visual colour and flavour.

In the past few years of providing these instruments, teachers across Canada and the USA are endorsing the instruments to their students, saying they easily beat out the competition in higher price ranges, including European-made instruments.

Bellissima violins typically retail from $1900 to the $2500 range. We post all our Bellissimas on permanent sales with generous discounts.

Only 4/4 violins are kept in stock, but smaller sizes are avilable as special commissioned instruments. Additionally, models above the regular price range can be commissioned and various violin family instruments [viola, cello, bass] are available upon request.

See several Bellissima violins for sale here. Fiddleheads invites players to take a Bellissima violin on trial.
