Collection: 5-string Violins

Who needs a 5-string violin?

  • Violinists or fiddlers who love the low, rich tone of the viola C string.
  • Violists who are also comfortable with the violin scale length, and want to keep that C string and add the brightness and range of the violin E string.
  • Teachers / instructors may want a violin and viola on hand to play certain passages for their students. A 5-string enables one to play violin, viola, and even cello parts (an octave higher than written, unless combined with an octave pedal!).
  • Improvisers -- expand your limits by expanding your range!
