For over four decades the Bucharest line of instruments has been the flagship of the Knilling line. Crafted from spruce and maple harvested in the Carpathian Mountains, Bucharest instruments are world-renowned for their tonal brilliance and structural stability. Bucharest instruments are further enhanced by the ability to add Perfection geared pegs and come with D’Addario strings. These features allow the developing player to shape their sounds and grow at their own pace without fighting the instrument. The complete Bucharest outfit includes a Union Station ABS shaped case and Glasser standard Fiberglass bow.
