David Yale Signature Series Strad Model Violin

We finally have more beautiful Strad Model David Yale Signature Series violins, which showcase outstanding resonance and a complex tonal character. Built from European tonewoods aged a minimum of 15 years, these violins feature beautiful, even-grained spruce along with striking flamed maple backs. The skillful, meticulous luthier work involved in constructing these violins is evident in every detail, from precise graduations to a beautiful oil varnish. The result is a gorgeous instrument that looks and sounds like a violin twice its price.


We've paired these violins with the exceptional CodaBow Diamond NX Bow with each outfit at no additional cost. We set up each violin with high-quality ebony fittings with boxwood trim. We find that our David Yale Signature Series violins respond and speak exceptionally well strung with either Rondo or Evah Pirazzi strings and will install the set of your choice at no additional cost. These violin outfits are perfect for advanced violinists and soloists. For details about the instruments in stock call the showroom at 1-800-779-0242.
