ETJ violins fit in most classic violin cases. They also accept all traditional chin rests and shoulder rests.
The octaved strings in the baritone version may require a slightly heavier violin bow depending of the playing technic of each one.
The special Wittner mechanical tuning pegs are very precise and easy to adjust, without friction. Very
light weight and placed right under the hand as on a traditional violin.
The standard tuning from low to high is:
-model 4 strings: G-D-A-E (idem violin 4/4) or an octave lower for the baritone scale model
-model 5 strings: C-G-D-A-E or an octave lower for the model with cello range (C bass of the cello)
Average weight of a 4 or 5 string model: 480gr
The weight may vary slightly depending on the nature of the wood used. The weight distribution is made at the back of the
instrument for a great feeling of lightness.
Woods: mahogany / central wenge reinforcement / ebony fingerboard
