The one-piece back Anton Gerard Violin is one of the most visually stunning from our line of fine instruments for intermediate and advanced violinists. Anton Gerard Violins offer a gorgeous, dark tone with amazing projection. Hear the rich and full sound of this instrument in our live performance video.
One of the most unique characteristics of the Gerard is the beautiful one-piece back. The highly flamed one-piece back increases the value of the instrument as pieces with even and intricate flame across a larger cut of high-grade maple are more rare.
Two-piece backed violins are commonly susceptible to an open seam or crack down the back of the instrument with changes in humidity and temperature. The absence of the glued seam between two plates down the middle of the back allows you to avoid this common and challenging repair.
Free setup of the Anton Gerard Violin by our professional luthier staff is done with utmost precision for extremely comfortable playability and responsiveness. The Gerard is fit with our highest-grade Aubert bridge, made in France with fine European maple. The bridge is hand-carved with precision to fit flush with the face of the instrument with accurate curvature for correct and comfortable action (the 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.
Professional fittings include
The fine qualities of the elegant Anton Gerard violin are sure to please even the most discriminating performers looking for a magnificent instrument at an unbeatable price. The complete violin outfit includes the following:

If you are considering a new violin for an aspiring student to professional, I can tell you that the Anton Gerard is a superior investment. We had a group of students & professionals play on the instrument just after it arrived and what a treat! The sound is large and balanced.

My Anton Gerard is almost 2 uyears old..made 4/4/10 and it has gotten better and better in sound and performance.....I started out wiht a NX Coda Bow and have been VERY pleased with the sound and the response of both the bow and the violin....I use Zyex strings on my Anto G. and it Very rarely needs to be tuned...it holds forever....envn in the winter!!
This is a beautiful violin that is equal to a Snow $1400+ violin......
You can't go wrong with it.....
