The D20 is the second instrument in the Daintree range by Glanville & Co. Glanville & Co. is a local workshop located right in the heart of Sydney. They were founded on the belief that all Australians should have access to music education and quality instruments that will nurture their development. It is through the fusion of technology & tradition that Glanville & Co. have been able to produce high-quality, customisable, innovative & affordable instruments that are entirely Australian made. This instrument comes with a certificate of authenticity.
The D20 has a two-piece maple back with a moderate flame & the top is made from spruce. This instrument is based on a Stradivari violin model. This violin has a good cover of dark-brown varnish & has been lightly antiqued. The colour of this model has been inspired by the dark tones of the Daintree Rainforest. The D20 has ebony fittings, a Wittner tailpiece & a Teller bridge.
The D20 has a powerful upper register that perfectly balances with the fullness & depth of the lower register. The overall sound of this instrument is beautifully smooth, open & well-rounded ensuring easy playability in any range. The D20 is suitable for the advanced beginner, intermediate players & the serious amateur. This violin is strung with Larsen Tzigane strings to enhance the richness & resonance of this instruments tone.
