Quality Build

The McNeela Virtuoso Violin features a bridge produced by the Aubert Lutherie in France. These French luthiers select the best quality maple wood and their bridges are treated with natural products which protect the wood and enhance its acoustic qualities.

Why Jujube?

Jujube, also referred to as 'red date' or the 'iron tree', is a species in the genus Ziziphus in the buckthorn family Rhamnaceae. As a tone wood, Jujube is characterised as a strong, dense, and highly durable wood. Aesthetically it is a particularly handsome wood, offering a fine texture and beautiful red hue when polished. Jujube is used in Korea, to craft the body of the traditional folk instrument, taepyeongso - a double reed wind instrument. Jujube and boxwood - when of a high quality - can be used interchangeably.

Violin Care Tips:

Learn to correctly care for your violin to protect your investment and ensure your new instrument stays in top condition for longer.


  • When not playing your violin, always store it in its hard case with the lid fastened.
  • Remember to remove your shoulder rest before storing your instrument.


  • Like most musical instruments, violins hate extremes of temperature and humidity.
  • Extremes of temperature or extreme fluctuations of temperature, may cause the wood to warp, affecting your tuning pegs and the intonation of the strings. 


  • Humidity must also be kept constant (not too high, not too low).
  • If you live in a very dry climate or somewhere with long, dry Winters, you might want to consider investing in a humidifier. 

Extra Care

  • Hold the violin at the neck, not at the body. Oils in our hands and fingers can damage the finish of the wood. 
  • Wipe your violin down with a dry, microfibre cloth after playing. This will help to prevent a build up of rosin and remove any oils from the body. 
  • Check the bridge placement before and after tuning. 
  • Bring your violin to a professional luthier to be cleaned. Never try to clean it yourself using water or cleaning products.
