The Sam's Strings Alla Breve Model violin is a welcome new addition to our upper strings selections. The term "alla breve" is another name for a cut-time meter, with a time signature of 2/2. This meter is generally characterized as more lively, with more forward momentum than 4/4. As the name suggests, our Alla Breve Model violin is a step forward for the quickly-advancing student. The tonal pallet is bright and powerful, with a clear and open focus. The rich dark color is indicative of the aural complexity of this unique instrument.
