Fiddles

A Fiddle is basically the same as a violin with the main differences being how the instrument is played and how it is set up. Fiddle music generally refers to bluegrass, country and other folk styles of music. Fiddlers tend to fit their instrument with a flatter bridge than a violinist. The flatter bridge allows the fiddler to reduce the amount of arm motion needed to play double stops and triple stops. The fiddle in bluegrass music is predominately a lead or melodic instrument, and provides much of the "fill" between melodic phrases.

Fiddles Under $250

Beginning fiddle players today are very fortunate to have such a large selection of playable fiddles or violins available for under $250.00, which should fit anyones budget. Of course, these fiddles or violins do not have the tone of the more expensive counterparts, but all of the ones we offer here are very playable, stay in tune and come as a complete outfit. We play and set up each fiddle before sending it to you so you are assured it is ready to play when you receive it.

The Maggini Violin is Palatino's first truly professional violin. Based on a famous Giovanni Paolo Maggini replica from 1834, this violin has a premium spruce top, premium maple back and sides, Hill-style ebony fittings and hand-inlaid double rows of purfling on the top and back. The Maggini is hand-carved and has an incredibly resonant body that's also extremely lightweight. This violin has a graceful arching rising from the edges which provides the dark, somber tone musicians expect in a Maggini model. The stunning hand-rubbed oil varnish finish is hard to miss, and provides excellent tonal projection and a classic antique look to the instrument.
