Endeavour violins are extremely light-weight and produce an alive, clear and beautiful resonance which far exceeds the tone of other violins in this price range. Made from carefully selected fine-grained and seasoned tonewoods, hand carved, and then carefully vanished by hand with traditional oil varnish. 

Each instrument is personally set-up by Phil Whitehead and adjusted for perfect playability, and for a beautifully rich and balanced tone. An excellent instrument for any higher level player.
