Violin Tone Wood & White Instruments
For the discerning instrument maker, JR Music Supply offers some of the industry’s finest materials for making and customizing your instruments.
From the Carpathian Mountains in Eastern Europe comes high quality spruce and maple wood ideal for violinmaking. JR Music Supply imports wood sets for violin and cello with highly figured maple and tight, even grained spruce. We stock wood aged no less than five years, often up to ten years old.
Violins, violas, and cellos “in the white” come from our Calin Wultur Workshop in Romania. These instruments are created to the same strict specifications as the Model #7 instruments, with lightly graduated top plates, fitted fingerboards, and beautifully flamed maple.
Aubert Bridges, made in Mirecourt, France since 1864, represent some of the finest bridges in the industry. JR Music Supply stocks bridges for violin, viola, cello, and bass in all sizes and qualities.
Other options include adjustable, low heart, French/Belgian, foot width in mm, treated or non-treated, and fractional sizes.
JR Music Supply provides the finest quality Siberian and Mongolian horse hair at various lengths for bow rehairs. They come in one pound bundles in unbleached white, gray, or black. These are strong horse hairs of consistent thickness, and are used by experts and shops around the world.
The tail hair from horses in the colder northern and southern regions is considered the best, as the climate results in thicker and stronger hair. The gender of the horse also comes into consideration, as the stallion hair is cleaner than mare hair. White hairs are preferred for violin and viola because they are usually smoother and finer in texture; the darker colored hair is often used for bass bows. Once gathered from the horse, the hairs go through a two step cleaning process before it is inspected for size, split ends and other irregularities before it is bundled and shipped.
JR Music Supply carries the highest quality Ebony, Boxwood, and Rosewood tailpieces, in addition to inexpensive Aluminum and Carbon models. Other brands include Wittner, Wittner Ultra, Weidler Akusticus, and more.
High quality ebony, boxwood, and rosewood as well as cheaper plastic, and ebonite chin rests are available for all sizes of violin and viola. Styles include Guarneri, Stradivarius, Kaufman, Hill, Flatsch, Schmidt, and others. JR Music Supply also carries Wittner chin rests.
