The Nickola Zubak Violin has a crystal-clear tone with bell-like resonance. With its brilliant singing upper register and warm robust lower register, the Nikola Zubak Violin has tremendous power and tonal character. The precise, detailed work and professional setup by Kennedy Violins' luthiers create an incredibly responsive instrument with sensitive playability, opening the doors to a wide range of expressive possibilities and nuance.
The Zubac is an extremely easy instrument to play because of its responsiveness, and has a ringing quality for each tone that is produced. As the violin is “played in,” the sound not only gets sweeter, but exhibits much more individual character in all tone ranges as well. If there ever was a violin that makes the player feel more empowered to play on stage, this is it!

Every Zubak violin is constructed of the finest woods from around the world. From Bosnian and Yugoslavian tone woods that are naturally aged between eight and twenty years to corner blocks made of European willow and hide glue construction, you will find that every component adds to its beauty and strong tone. The playing surfaces are carved with the utmost precision using fingerboards made from Madagascan ebony, and the beauty of the violin is created using traditional materials such as lavender oil, gum, and natural shellacs.
Aesthetically, the violin has a stunning, warm honey-brown finish. The antiqued body gives the violin strong visual character. The Zubac features premium-grade ebony fittings. The elegant body of the instrument is crafted in the style of Del Gesu.

The bridge is hand-carved with precision to fit flush with the face of the instrument and with accurate top curvature, creating correct string height above the fingerboard. The quality of wood, shape, and fit of the bridge allows performers to easily manipulate even the smallest tone color.
