I recently purchased a violin for my wife to begin playing. The instrument is tagged as being made by "Tanglewood Strings". This is a very nice instrument for the price, and has a very nice sound for a student violin. After an upgrade from the standard student model bow, there are some very nice sounds coming from her.
The particular model that we have is all solid ,spruce and maple with nice flaming....the standard stuff. The tailpiece is composite, but that is the only shortcoming that I personally have with it. She has an actual ebony fingerboard and pegs, and inlaid purfling , and was created in 2004. This was definitely a student rental that had been turned in , so she has some playing time on her , and has just enough dings and dents to make her beautiful.
However, in all of my research I have been able to find very little info on the makers of these instruments , and just wondered if anyone had any experience with them , or perhaps even currently owned one. Again , we have no worries with her, and are very happy to have her , we're just curious.
