Jim Clinton Violins Greenville, SC

V E Torelli: violin, viola, cello, bass

Instrument description

Our V E Torelli violin, viola, cello, or bass package is a sensibly priced and purchase worthy instrument (unlike lower quality rental instruments). It is 2 steps above rental grade, a manufactured violin that is quality control inspected and upgraded when it arrives at our workshop. We purchased these instruments at volume discount and are passing that price value along to new musicians wishing to maximize their learning experience and have good sound.

Who is it for?

For the serious beginning musician. The V E Torelli instrument and accessory package is assembled and set up in the US, and is carefully manufactured to meet our specs. See comparison chart for more information.

Sizes Available

Instrument sizes are available for musicians aged 3 through adult.

Where did it come from?

These instruments are purchased from our US supplier in California. Since no violins are manufactured in the US, our suppliers import from Asia or Europe.


A setup is work done in our shop to improve an instrument’s ease of play and to improve it’s built in tone. Here is what we do on your V E Torelli:

  1. Inspect and correct the bridge and nut grooves. This extends string life, improves clarity of tone and ease of play with accurate string spacing.
  2. Upgrade strings to American-made strings
  3. Adjust the sound post for better tone and “ring”.
  4. Reset the bridge position based on the instrument’s tonal center.
  5. Performance test by playing your instrument and adjusting it for ease of function and beauty of tone.
  6. Inspect tuning pegs for proper function.

Included with your V E Torelli model package:

  • Instrument with setup
  • Bow: a better than rental grade fiberglass bow, black with ebony frog (not plastic)
  • Case: an arrow shaped, thermoplastic hard shell protective carrying case. Cello & bass comes with standard canvas gig bag.

Personalize your V E Torelli with an Upgrade

Although we feel we have assembled price and performance-level-appropriate instrument packages, you may wish to customize your outfit to meet your personal intentions. Here are a few suggestions for personalizing your new V E Torelli instrument:

  • Strings: Selecting European professional grade strings will easily improve your tone. We carry several brands that cost approximately $60 (violin price).
  • Bow upgrade: An even better performing bow will compliment your V E Torelli instrument. We suggest upgrading to a select hardwood bow, or an entry level carbon fiber bow. Add $30 to $70.
