Raúl Emiliani model VL928 violins bring together outstanding tonewoods, expert craftsmanship, and artistic oil varnish to create a professional instrument. Meticulously tuned plates and bass bars contribute to the superb, rich and powerful tone. The depth of tonal color offers a highly expressive range of musical options for the performing artist.

"The Emiliani's temperament, is complex and refined with many colors to coax out of the violin. Its sound is plush and even, from a warm sounding E string to a lively, throaty tone on the G. It has a beautifully delicate sound" - Strings Magazine
