When a player reaches a high level of proficiency an instrument with greater versatility is required. Better response, wider tonal range, more powerful projection, and high aesthetic qualities are some characteristics of instruments in this price range.

Our DeLuxe setup offers upgraded choice of fittings such as the bridge, endpin, and string. Given the level of these models, we do not offer a standard setup.
