Instruments from Musaica Imports
Musaica Imports, LLC offers customers the finest quality string instruments and accessories from manufacturers throughout Europe, Asia, and the United States. We hand select each instrument and take great care in its set up in our workshop using the highest standards and materials. The Academia and Conservatory instruments are completely hand-carved and have all ebony or rosewood fittings, have hand-applied spirit or oil varnish and have inlaid purfling.
Musaica Imports String Instruments are offered in four levels:
Conservatory - For the intermediate player who is ready for a a step up from Academia level.
Concert - Gorgeous hand finished instruments for the advancing player.
Master Art - Rich sounding, hand carved instruments for the serious player.
Most instruments leave the workshop where they were made in an "unfitted" condition - not tuned or adjusted for the best sound and for the individual student. To the untrained eye, an unfitted instrument may appear perfectly finished and ready to play.
We spend several hours of set-up work on each individual instrument. The bridge is carved and adjusted to the proper height and shape for maximum tone and response. The finger board is planed for accurate intonation and to eliminate buzzes. We cut the sound post to the proper fit, which enhances the tone and stability of the instrument. Pegs are adjusted for ease in tuning. We customize each violin, viola or cello with the best choice of strings for the acoustics of the individual instrument.
