Raggetti RV5 Violin Outfit
The next step up from the RV2, the RV5 outfit is ideal for the intermediate to advanced student. Better grades of wood are selected for the RV5 which is crafted in the Raggetti workshop in China where the builders have been trained in the traditional Cremonese fashion of building. Close grained European mountain spruce is expertly graduated and tuned along with the Himalayan maple back that at this level begins to show flame and curl. The instrument is finished in an attractive oil varnish that has been tweaked over years of production for the Australian market.
As with most FPS student outfits the violin is supplied with a lightweight tailpiece with inbuilt adjusters for ease of tuning. Pegs, fingerboard, chinrest and endpin are all ebony and are fitted to the instrument. Parts are supplied loose for shop fitting. The violin includes a professional luthier set up and upgraded Armonico Vento synthetic core strings (not factory steel core strings).
