The Gand is one of our most visually stunning violins made with premium solid tonewoods at an accessible price.

The Kennedy Violins Difference

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 are the only company confident enough to back up our instruments with our lifetime warranty and 45-day money-back guarantee. Experience the Kennedy Violins difference today!

Finish & Form

We're often asked what makes one stringed instrument cost more than another, and it always comes down to the quality or grade of woods, fittings, and finish on each instrument. The Nicholas Gand Viola is made with far more superior materials than beginner and student models. The big sound, excellent playability, comfortable string height for the left hand, and other characteristics contribute to the superiority of an instrument that will increase in value and worth over time.

The Nicholas Gand Violin is constructed with aged tone-woods that are highly select. The solid, tight-grain spruce top is hand carved with great detail and attention to the thickness and measurement of the plates. The maple back is made with beautiful, tiger-striped flame accentuated by a warm varnish. The perfectly polished oil-based finish increases its attractiveness, especially when combined with the amount of flame on the back of the instrument.

An Incredible Sound

The sound of the Nicholas Gand Violin is warm and intricate, complemented by steel-core D’Addario Prelude Strings. The body of the instrument is made with select tight-grained spruce and maple tonewoods and finished with 100% high-grade ebony fittings. The wood selection for this instrument creates a projective and responsive sound that is perfect for advancing players who are able to bring out the intricacies of its sound with their own performance.
