S. Mahler: violin, viola, cello, bass

Experience the potential of a handmade instrument with the S. Mahler model.

Instrument description

Our S. Mahler violin, viola, cello or bass package takes the musician to a whole new level. Most of the instrument making process involves handwork at the manufacturer’s workshop. These instruments are made with European tonewood and techniques. The Mahler line (F. Mahler is next) is the transition just before completely handmade instruments with the maker’s actual name label. This is obvious when you pick up the instrument and experience its lightweight body and hear its mature tone.

Who is it for?

S. Mahler instruments are for leaders of school and community orchestra sections, and private lesson students. They are the first level instruments that are appropriate for a college audition. Compare the S. Mahler to other popular instrument packages.

Sizes Available

Full size only and adults

Where did it come from?

Purchased from our supplier in the Northeast US. Since no violins are manufactured in the US, our suppliers import from Asia or Europe.
