The Sebastian Series represents exceptional value. As the entry into the Knilling line, Sebastian instruments are notable for their robust construction, fine ebony fittings, and stunning finish. Available with either a high-grade factory adjustment or the more refined Knilling String Shop adjustment, you will find your Sebastian to be attractive, affordable, and reliable.
The Bucharest Series is the flagship of the entire Knilling line. Each Bucharest instrument begins its journey in the mountains of Romania and is crafted from naturally seasoned Carpathian spruce and maple. Revered the world over for its purity, Carpathian spruce and maple has a tonal clarity and level of consistency rarely found in other tonewoods. Each Bucharest instrument is crafted in Romania and then receives a full precision adjustment in the Knilling String Shop. Students and teachers all over the world rely on Bucharest in their orchestras.
Anton Eminescu – where value meets performance. The Eminescu line of Performance instruments are designed for the advancing young player. Originating in the Carpathian Mountains of Romania, they are completely finished in the Knilling String Shop and open up as they are played in. With Eminescu, no detail is spared. Ranging from violin to cello, an Anton Eminescu appeals to the discerning player as they grow and refine their craft.
The finest premium-aged European tonewoods are reserved for Nicolo Gabrieli violins, violas and cellos. Highly skilled European master luthiers prepare these instruments to achieve exceptional tonal characteristics even before the Gabrieli Shop in the United States further refines and graduates each instrument to perform to its individual potential. Hand applied pigment colors and varnish enhance the beautiful tonewoods, and final adjustment ensures each Gabrieli will perform with the most refined tonal color and complexity.
