Our most popular violin outfit, the Ricard Bunnel G1
Violin Outfit is an upgrade from the Bunnel G2 and an excellent choice for
students and adult beginners. The Bunnel G1 includes unique professional
upgrades and offers a sound typically described by professional testers as
sweet, strong, and projective. The Ricard Bunnel G1 Violin Outfit now comes
with the complete package of accessories (shoulder rest, extra strings, and
more) at no additional cost! As the perfect all-in-one package for new
players, young and old, outfits in all sizes (available in 1/16 to 4/4),
include EVERYTHING you need to start playing the moment you open your case.
Upgraded Features With the same Bunnel shape and design constructed by master
craftsmen, the G1 is similarly constructed to the G2 with choice tone woods
and a smooth oil (not lacquer) finish. Upgraded features of Bunnel G1 Violin
Outfit include the following: Upgrades hand-carved German Teller or French
Aubert bridge made with high-grade maple Finer detail work in the ebony nut,
pegs, and fittings Improved playability Upgraded rosin and case Strings The
Ricard Bunnel G1 Violin is strung with steel-core D’Addario Prelude Strings,
which greatly improve playability and sound. While most violins come with
basic “solid” steel strings with no winding that often produce little
resonance and a cold sound, Preludes offer a warm and rich sound. Free Setup
FREE professional setup by our staff of experienced luthiers is included as a
complimentary service with every instrument purchase. Our Kennedy Violins
luthiers ensure that each individual violin is setup, inspected, and tuned to
meticulous standards. Setup includes the following: Smoothing an accurately
planed fingerboard Hand-carving, arching, shaping, and notching the custom-fit
bridge Fitting bridge feet to the curvature of the violin Carving the nut to
professional standard measurements and curvature Fitting and lubricating pegs
