Wittner’s Finetune pegs are a welcome innovation for player of all standards.
Traditionally, most bowed instruments are tuned using wooden pegs, which are ‘wedged’ into the wooden holes of the pegbox at the top of the instrument, with friction keeping them in place. When the strings needed to be tuned the pegs have to be loosened, turned and then pushed back in. This process can take a little force and isn’t the easiest or most accurate for inexperienced hands. Plus, over time the pegs or the hole can wear which means they don’t fit as well in the hole and so lose their tune more easily.
The clever, German-engineering employed in Wittner’s Finetune pegs allows the student or professional to turn the internally geared peg in a controlled way, without the main shaft of the peg ever losing contact with the pegbox. This means you can make tiny, incremental increases or decreases in pitch - just like tuning a guitar.
· Finetune Pegs look like traditional pegs on the outside. All the clever stuff is hidden inside.
· Finetune Pegs are fitted as standard to Hidersine ‘Academy’ and ‘Finetune’ instruments.
Anti-Allergenic, Centre-mounted Chin Rest:
As recommended by members of the European String Teacher’s Association, a centre-mounted chin rest is generally considered to make playing a little bit easier and more comfortable. As the chin rest position alters the violin’s holding position, it enables a slightly easier fingering, especially for children and smaller players. Added to this comfort benefit, the chin rest is made of composite material which is ideal for those players whose skin may react adversely when in contact with chin rests made of stained wood.
A tone that will continually improve.
Hidersine Vivente Academy instruments feature a solid spruce top – or sound-table. This is important because your instrument’s primary voice is formed by this sound-table, and therefore the top can resonate as a single, coherent structure and sound great as a result. Plus, as the wood ages and the solid tonewood top gradually relaxes at a cellular level into its natural rest state, it will resonate even naturally, and the sound will improve further.
Ebony - Feels great, plays great:
Vivente Academy violins, violas, cellos and double basses all benefit from a genuine Ebony fingerboard. This prized hardwood has traditionally been used for fingerboards for hundreds of years due to its truly long-lasting properties. Unlike stained or ‘ebonized’ softwoods often used on student instruments, genuine Ebony will not mark, pit or wear out under lengthy playing periods. Rather it will remain structurally sound for a very long time, and will also feel smooth on the fingers, helping make the playing experience more pleasant all round.
An Exclusive Appearance.
Hidersine Vivente Academy instruments not only have a solid top, but they also have solid Maple ribs and backs too. These solid tonewood sections further enhance the instrument’s natural tone. The top produces the instrument’s primary voice, and the back and sides add the character.
The solid Maple core is enhanced further by a ‘graphic flame’ finish. This is a special finishing technique which gives the appearance of visually top-grade, flamed maple, so your Vivente instrument has the appearance of a much more exclusive instrument.
