For most players, the NP30N will be the last violin they will buy. This model is made from the best Chinese tonewood. The maple used is very highly figured and the spruce is tightly grained. The violin is finished with a fine imported Italian oil varnish which is hand rubbed in over many sessions. It is applied in a very authentic antique style with good variation making the instrument look as if it were more than 100 years old.
For both the NP30N and NP30E our master makers apply a special double density hand graduation method to ensure great balance, power, and projection. Double density means that the instrument is graduated two times. The first is the standard graduation by thickness. The second graduation uses high power lights which the maker places under each plate so he can see color variations in the wood. Seeing these variations enable him to do very light scrapings to even out the density. This process ensures the graduation is more effective. The instrument will be more lively, speak better, be very even, and in perfect balance. The instrument will also project well, be quick to react, and have a warm even color throughout.
