OVERVIEW

A step up violin built in Europe using centuries old craftsmanship.

Craftsmen from Romania use their superior technique to create the beautiful Alexandria step-up violin. Hand-graduated spruce top and nicely flamed maple back, sides and neck. The golden brown spirit varnish finish adds to the instruments beauty. Complete package includes deluxe ebony fingerboard, pegs, nuts, saddle, deluxe over the tailpiece chinrest, and an ebony tailpiece with 4 gold fine tuners. Shop adjusted to MENC specifications with D'Addario Pro-Arté strings and Aubert bridge. This outfit includes an oblong wood case with a deluxe burgundy plush interior and German made Brazilwood bow.
Hand Carved

The Alexandria 100 offers a step-up violin for an entry level price. A violin with spirit varnish offers a better tone because it is thinner than lacquer used on most violins. The clean, precise craftsmanship combined with hand-graduated spruce top and flamed maple gives this violin an elegant look and a superb tone.
Included Accessories

The outfit includes D'Addario Pro-Arté strings and a French Aubert bridge to enhance tone quality. Also included is a teacher's favorite: a German made brazilwood bow and rosin. The oblong wood case with a deluxe burgundy plush interior comes with a zipper pocket on the exterior for sheet music. The stylish plush interior includes a pocket for rosin and shoulder rest and two bow holders.
Romanian Craftsmanship

The violin is made in a factory located in Reghin, Romania. This region of the world has a sizable population of skilled woodworking artisans where handcrafting violins is a centuries old tradition.

Top Quality!

By Tana Pohs

from England

Comments about Florea Alexandria PRO Outfit:

I am very happy with my decision! I brought this violin and it a lot better than I expected. The rich and warm sound quality. The bow was a little bit slippery but just because the bow is very new. After a few play the bow feel more 'sticky' which plays a lot easier.
I'm very happy with this set. I would reccommend this to all beginner to pro level.

Top quality stuff!

Sadly, not as nice as advertised

By Pastor JC

from Sperryville, VA

Comments about Florea Alexandria PRO Outfit:

The product description sounded exciting. I was convinced that this would be a nice upgrade instrument for my daughter. Unfortunately, I was in for a disappointment. The case was seamed with cheap vinyl tape, not standard vinyl piping. It did not look like it would stand up to any abuse. This would have been acceptable, until I opened the case and saw the instrument. The instrument was, at best, unremarkable. I have both an entry-level 3/4 violin and a Chinese-made $100 4/4 that both look just as nice as this violin. There were scratches around one tone hole, and the finish was not even applied to one corner (bare wood). A deep one-inch gouge through the finish completed the disappointment of this instrument.Thankfully, Musicians Friend was outstanding, as usual, and Customer Service deemed the instrument damaged and paid the return shipping. I purchased a Yamaha AV5 for a little more, and could not be happier!
