What makes Kennedy Violins string instruments the best on the market? First, we purchase each violin directly from the maker — a rare and highly effective business practice that lowers our cost and allows us to pass the savings to you. Next, all final assembly and FREE setup is performed locally in our Washington State shop by our professionally trained luthier staff. NO assembly or setup is required with a violin that is ready to play from the moment you open the case. With both the highest-rated violins and customer service in the U.S., we invite you to experience the Kennedy Violins difference today!
The oil finish is a unique feature usually seen on more expensive violins. Student-level string instruments sold by other retailers at this cost are typically coated with a thick, glossy lacquer finish that hinders quality tone production. The Ricard Bunnel has an authentic, hand-rubbed oil finish. It not only looks more professional, but remains true to historical, tried-and-true standards of hand-crafted violin making. The finish, construction, fittings, and design of the Ricard Bunnel give this instrument a warmer and more projective sound than competing student violins at the same price point.
