The NP5 has a rich dark hand applied antiqued oil varnish. Handwork is nice and clean with the instrument exhibiting a rich warm sound with great power, projection, and balance.
The NP5 violin is a kind of variation from our NP10. Like all of our instruments, the NP5 is made by a single maker from nicely flamed maple (back and sides) and tightly grained spruce (top). It is finished with a deep rich reddish brown hand applied oil varnish.
