GEWA Maestro - these are excellently crafted string instruments of the middle class for all levels of ability, from demanding pupils to committed hobby musicians and advanced students. Even professionals will find an adequate second or travel instrument here.
The Maestro series has the most extensive range of models in the Gewa programme. Solid, hand-selected European tonewoods are used throughout. For all other components, too, great importance is attached to European quality from manufacturers such as Wittner, Larsen and Aubert.
Quality, equipment, details and pricing are defined by the model number. For example, the Maestro 1 student models represent the entry level of this series, while higher model numbers stand for more sound, appearance and sophistication. Take a look around. We guarantee that you will find the right instrument for you.
Based on the careful selection of wood and components, all instruments in this series have a quality foundation that consistently stands for excellent sound and high-quality workmanship.
Depending on the demands and preferences of the musicians, the various models are equipped with additional features, different selected tonewoods and increasingly elaborate varnishes. The higher the model number, the more exquisite the instrument.
From students with high expectations to advanced students or professionals who wish to have an appropriate second instrument, everyone will find something suitable here.
The Maestro series includes violins, violas and cellos in various sizes.
This instrument is set up professionally in our in-house Edinburgh workshop by our expert luthiers. It is then sound-tested and tonally adjusted in conjunction with our playing staff. Only once we are satisfied the timbre, playability and appearance are optimised is the instrument made available for sale to our customers.
What is a setup?
A violin, viola or cello setup refers to the playing action of the instrument; the interaction between the bridge, soundpost, strings and their other contact points including the nut at the top of the fingerboard and the tailpiece and saddle. The setup is critical in the production of sound as well as determining playability. Many student instruments are sold with a basic factory setup, without being checked, tested or improved at all. Not only does this limit the instrument's timbral potential, but also the way the instrument can be played, often inhibiting progress and instilling poor playing habits.
