After three years of intensive development Mezzo-Forte Streichinstrumente presents the first fully carbon violin available on the worldwide market at an affordable price. The violin, designed and produced using state-of-the-art technology produces a quality of sound easily comparable to that of a wooden instrument whilst offering far greater presence, projection and ease of playing as well as being visually stunning.

The advantages of a carbon fibre violin:
  • complete insensitivity to fluctuations in atmospheric conditions such as temperature and humidity
  • strength and stability
  • visually stunning
  • a full and pleasant sound, rich and warm with much ease of response
  • The body of the violin is hand crafted using carbon-fibre matting - made in Germany - guaranteed
  • The interior of the instrument corresponds to that of a traditional wooden instrument; only the cornices are excluded - for two reasons:
    • A conscious decision to create a modern slim design whilst maintaining (mirroring) the form of a traditional instrument
    • The cornices of a wooden instrument serve to aid the construction, providing support and enabling the front, sides and bottom to be fixed firmly together. These cornices, which can dampen the sound, are not required when using carbon-fibre
  • The sound post, bridge, pegs and tail piece all correspond to that of a traditional instrument.
  • The "Design Line" instrument is fitted with an ebony fingerboard

5 String Model, basically the same as the classical carbon fibre violin, however some changes were made to enable comfortably playing on 5 strings.
  • Bridge and tailpiece are cut by hand (tailpiece made of ebony)
  • The fingerboard is composite material which feels exactly the same as ebony
  • Strings are D'Addario Helicore which give a warm tone on the lower strings and brightness on the upper strings
  • The instrument is as easy to play as the other carbon fiber instruments and the measurements are all the same as on a wooden violin, for an immediately familiar feeling.
