Franz Helmer
The Franz Helmer represents an excellent value for the beginning student. These violins come from finer Chinese workshops, and all are set-up and adjusted at Gailes’ Violin Shop, Inc. We find their quality consistently high, unlike many comparably priced Chinese instruments. They offer good playability and a quick and easy response. These violins feature acoustic tonewoods of maple and spruce that are far superior to their competition, as well as ebony pegs and fingerboard and genuine Wittner tailpieces.
