We just shipped this left-handed version of our new International Travel Violin. This instrument, while having a full-length scale, is short enough to fit into a 4" diameter x 22" long case. That meets all known carry baggage size restrictions in the world. The instrument, in its case, will fit into many roller bags.
The International Travel Violin is our newest design. It is, of course, a TRAVEL VIOLIN that we designed for violinists and fiddlers wishing to travel without worry with their instruments by air:
- To destinations outside of the U.S., especially Europe
- From one European region to another or from one country to another
- On any small plane (< 50 seats), regardless of destination, within the U.S. or abroad
- Desire an all wood, luthier-built instrument with a 4/4 playable string length,
- Require an instrument with the sonority and timbre close to that of a full-size instrument.
This completely new instrument has a full-size playable string length of just approximately 13 inches. The cool thing about the International Travel Violin is that it has a body length of approximately 13 inches (normal 4/4 violin has a 14” body) and a cleverly shortened “scroll-less” pegbox. The result is a full-size instrument with a total length of just under 21”! This allows the use of a case that is a mere 22” in length. It will fit into many TSA-certified carry-on roller bags!
The International Travel Violin is a shorter version of our famous full-length Ranger C3 Travel Violin, which fits into a 4”x24” case. If you deserve the very best travel violin available anywhere, Summer is the time to make it happen. If you are planning a trip this Summer, you had better get it going pretty soon—don’t forget that each one is custom-built.
Both the International Travel Violin and the Ranger C3 Travel Violin normally sell for $2600, which is a bargain if you really care about master-level quality, playability and sound. Right now, they are both on sale for only $2195! See them at the Don Rickert Musician Shop (www.DonRickertMusicianShop.com). Or go directly to the product links shown below.
