Product Description

5Star Pro Fiddles are the outcome of our effort to make the best five-string instrument possible, without compromise. Designed from its inception for optimum performance as a five-string instrument, the body is a little longer than a normal violin, the lower bouts wider, and the ribs are taller, but the scale length is the same as on a violin. All 5Star Pro Fiddles have one-piece backs; some have one-piece fronts. 5Star Pro Fiddles are crafted entirely in our Kansas City workshop by senior luthiers, many of whom learned the art of string instrument construction in Europe. All aspects of the making process are overseen by Anton Krutz. We hand select every single piece of European and American maple and spruce used to make these instruments. The wood is then aged for five to ten years before the instrument crafting begins. Anton's own proprietary sealer and varnish are used. These instruments are then given a professional set-up by the craftsmen in our shop. 5Star Pro Fiddles utilize fully professional materials and precise specifications, which give them the strong sound and tonal flexibility desired by advanced students and rising professionals.

Set-Up: Seasoned spruce top; Seasoned maple back, ribs and scroll; inlaid purfling; Medium flame; Acoustically enhanced wood sealer; Antiqued oil varnish; Ebony or boxwood fittings; Aubert bridge; D’Addario Helicore strings; Ebony or boxwood tailpiece; Wittner mechanical pegs. Bridge, fingerboard, nut and soundpost assembled, dressed, fitted and tonally adjusted in our Kansas City workshop.

Available sizes: 14.5” (F050), 15.5” (F850)
