I first dealt with Strunal many years ago and was disappointed with the set up, but then was persuaded to give them another try several years later and wow! They had sorted their set up problems out and everything was beautifully set up. I started dealing with them again but then they found that I was not registered for VAT and decided not to deal with me. Well, i am registered for VAT now and have been approached by them to ask if I would like to start selling their violins again.
Well that's fine as far as I am concerned because as I said, they are good. In fact I am not entirely sure why they are not more popular. Strunal is the largest violin making company in Europe and they have been going for decades. Actually they say they can trace their history through 300 years! Here is their website
They also make vioins under the brand names Dvorak and Paganini.
Now one of the problems (well, the only one really) with Strunal is that they have an unfortunate habit of changing model numbers on a regular basis and also until quite recently they used to produce many different models at very similar prices so that it is sometimes quite difficult to work out exactly what is what. But don't worry, I have done the work for you.
In fact I acquired the present selection from the liquidation of Omega Music and so these are discontinued models but don't let that influence you, not at the speed these model numbers change! After all, if I put up antique Czech violins (which will probably come from the same place) you would all be looking at them, wouldn't you.
So then, the 3310 (also called the S3310) comes from near the top of Strunal's Concert violin range. It is very well flamed. Omega had these priced at £886 and they had a reputation for very low pricing.
I have a few of these in stock so there are some options. Choose from Dominant or Vision strings. Choose from an ebony tailpiece with one adjuster or four, or a Wittner tailpiece. Choose your chinrest if you like (within reason). I have one with a mother of pearl flower on the tailpiece (first come first served). I also have one with beautiful boxwood fittings but it does also have a very noticeable varnish blemish on the front.
As always, don't forget, if you want to try this violin alongside others, that is absolutely fine. Just get in touch.
