The Jose Hernandez Signature model violin is highly sought after, not only for its sound and playability, but also for its beautiful decorative inlays. The violin is modeled after the famous 1679 Stradivarius copy known as the Hellier Strad. The Signature model features choice European spruce and well-figured curly maple to achieve a warmer sound. The violin is highly flamed and varnished with a deep coloration to give an exciting, old-fashioned look. Each violin is professionally adjusted to ensure all copies meet the highest standards of sound quality and tonal clarity.
The Signature model is fitted with professional Dominant strings. In addition to the 4 gold Wittner fine tuners, the violin is fitted with hand-carved boxwood pegs, tailpiece, and chinrest.
The Signature outfit includes a professional Pernambuco-wrapped carbon fiber bow. A thin layer of Pernambuco covers this braided carbon fiber stick, giving the bow the strength of a carbon fiber bow while still maintaining a classic, woody-tone. The outfit's case is an upgraded plywood suspension case that offers dependable storage with a classic look. The case features two interior storage areas, four bow holders, instrument blanket, hygrometer, string tube, exterior storage pocket, plus shoulder and backpack straps.
