Inspired by old world craftsmanship and the artistry of Italian design, Palatino takes its name from a central hill in Rome where ancient emperors built their palaces. It is from these origins that provide Palatino its passion for incredibly crafted and meticulously detailed musical instruments. Since 1994, Palatino has been devoted to bringing together the beauty of tradition with the strength of contemporary technology to classic instruments for the world to enjoy.
Palatino's Dolce violin outfit offers experienced players professional features at an affordable price. The Dolce is handmade with a tight grained, select spruce top for a beautiful, singing tone. The back and sides are built with gorgeous, bookmatched flamed maple for more beauty and distinction. These woods are highly complimented by the Dolce's stunning oil varnish finish. This exquisite finish aids in the tonal properties of the instrument because it enhances the resonant properties of the tonewoods. The Dolce also boasts dependable ebony fittings, and comes complete with a brazilwood bow with ebony frog and a featherweight suspension case.
Palatino's line of string instruments include violins, violas, cellos and basses, most of which are hand-carved and offered in golden brown or oil varnish finishes. Palatino violins were the top selling student violins in 2003, signifying the brand's strong commitment to the educational market.
