This outfit comes with the Morningstar fiddle, the Eastman 1304 case, and a BL20 Pernambuco bow.
The Morningstar is named for a favorite Texas-style waltz (and it also happens to be the name of the preschool my mom founded in Denver!). This fiddle provides a remarkable sound, visual beauty, sturdiness, playability, and affordability. It is rare to find a student-grade instrument constructed of such quality spruce and maple tonewoods as the Morningstar; a unique feature of this instrument is that it’s made of Romanian tonewoods. Other features that make this instrument among the finest student models available are the ebony pegs, chinrests, fingerboards, and inlaid purfling. When I play this fiddle, it has that sweet and gentle sound that you want to hear when you’re starting to get comfortable playing the fiddle.
The Case: Eastman 1304
Cordura nylon withstands tears, scuffs, and abrasions. Quality hardware and 3-layer wooden shell ensures years of protection for your violin. The case includes a music pocket, two backpack straps, an accessory compartment, two bow spinners, and a shoulder rest compartment.
The Bow: Eastman BL20
These entry-level Brazilwood bows allow students on a budget to enjoy the advantages of hand-made quality. Starting with strong, aged Brazilwood sticks, Eastman bowmakers construct bows the old-fashioned way. Ebony frogs fully mounted in nickel silver and mother-of-pearl, leather and imitation whalebone grips, and quality unbleached Mongolian horsehair all contribute to a bow that will assist and reward a beginning player’s efforts.
