"The Maestro is the ultimate solution for a high quality violin."

Endeavour 'Maestro' violins are the top level of the Endeavour range. They are meticulously hand-carved in China to strict design and quality specifications of The String Workshop. They stand out from other brands of 'heavy' and 'dull' instruments which are swamping today's market.
Endeavour 'Maestro' violins are light-weight and produce an alive, and clear resonance which far exceeds the tone of other instruments in this price range. Made from carefully selected fine-grained and seasoned tonewoods, they are hand carved, hand assembled, and then carefully hand varnished with natural recipe traditional varnish before being sent to New Zealand. Once they arrive in New Zealand, they are carefully inspected for quality control. Each instrument is then personally set-up by Phil Whitehead and professionally adjusted for perfect playability, and for the most clear and balanced tone. 
New Zealand's violin teachers agree; Endeavour 'Maestro' violins are excellent and professional quality instruments.
