We are excited to introduce our newest addition to Kennedy Violins' selection of fine instruments. The Mikhail Vitacek Violin is made by one master luthier, fashioned in the style of the Russian tradition and patterned after the signature Stradivarius design.
The Vitacek violin is extremely resonant, with a strong voice. Its detailed, intricate construction includes the bass bar, sound post, and structural components placed with absolute precision within the soundbox for a flawless sound and amazing projection.
The attention to the interior graduations allows for warm and even vibrations to be channeled through the body of the instrument, projecting the sound outward with a clear voice. Its brilliant, singing acoustics include rich, full tones in the low range and clear, pronounced treble frequencies in the upper range. We encourage you to listen to our four sample videos to hear the clarity of sound produced by the Vitacek violin. It is a pleasure to play and will instill confidence in anyone performing on the violin.
The beautiful hand-rubbed finish on the Mikhail Vitacek Violin is none other than classic. The deep, rich color of the varnish highlights both the grain of the Canadian Spruce top (aged for over ten years) and the gorgeous tiger flame in the one-piece maple back. A darker finish around the ribs and authentic ebony purfling bring out its antique, timeless look. The sophisticated character of the violin is evident in both its sound and appearance.
The Mikhail Vitacek Violin comes with only the best ebony fittings: pegs, chinrest, tailpiece, and fingerboard are of strong, dense ebony. The pegs and tailpiece are accented with mother of pearl, with gold-brass accented brackets on the chinrest to match the rings around the inlaid eyes. The Vitacek comes pre-strung with steel-core D’Addario Prelude Strings and one fine tuner. Extra fine tuners can be fit by request at no extra cost.
As always, the Vitacek, like all Kennedy Violins instruments, come completely presetup and inspected by a professional luthier on staff.
The Mikhail Vitacek Violin Outfit includes the following:
• Frog of 100% ebony and mother-of-pearl accents
• Real horse hair
• Silver winding

The violin and all the accessories I got with it are all very nice and classy looking. The violin itself sounds great, and the bow and shoulder rest are good for anyone looking to upgrade from a cheaper student violin. The case I chose also reflects the classiness of the violin outfit, and I like it very much. This is a good value!

I at first bought the Mikhail Vitacek using the in-home trail option to test it out and see if it meets my needs. I'm a beginner but have been progressing very quickly and wanted to find a violin that would stay with me until I become very advanced. I'm will say with 100% confidence that this violin is amazing for its price. The violin arrived in a beautiful eco case (I actually had 2 violins for an in-home and I struggled trying to pick which eco case to pick!). The included bow that I received was well balanced and played well. Even my teacher praised it for how low of a price for its ease of control. The Vitacek violin has a very central warm tone on all strings. The lower register is warm and the higher register is brilliant. I had Obligato strings on it and it was strong and warm. I would recommend this Vitacek violin to anyone looking for an affordable advanced violin at a very high quality. The Vitacek is also very beautiful to look at with its hand rubbed varnish and highly flamed one piece back. Kennedy's customer service is also outstanding. They were quick and very friendly. I even received candies with my violin :P Now I can be a proud owner of the Vitacek violin and it will take me through my journey in violin learning. Thank you Kennedy!
