OWN A STRADIVARIUS FOR $1,600? STRINGWORKS OFFERS HANDMADE VIOLINS, VIOLAS, AND CELLI INSPIRED BY THE MASTERPIECES OF STRADIVARIUS
MILWAUKEE, WI - Mar. 18, 2003 /Send2Press Newswire/ -- StringWorks, Inc.
(www.stringworks.com) announces its new Kallo Bartok line of violins, violas,
and cellos, combining the beauty of an antique musical instrument with the value
and quality of a new handmade instrument. Combining the finest aged European
woods, hand-carved construction by the most experienced European luthiers, and
careful, expert antiquing of the varnish, these instruments are breathtaking
both tonally and visually.
Entirely handmade for StringWorks in a small master workshop in Budapest,
Hungary, the quality of the aged wood and tremendous execution of the varnish
antiquing makes these affordable instruments nearly indistinguishable from
instruments 150-200 years old.
"It's exciting to see the tremendous quality and craftsmanship in these
instruments," says StringWorks' President Todd French. "Each one is carefully
crafted to emulate so closely the master work of Stradivarius."
Pricing is remarkable at $1,600 for a superb StringWorks Kallo Bartok Violin.
Complete packages including instrument, case, and choice of bow range from
$1,895 to $2,485. The Kallo Bartok Viola starts at $1,900, and Cello starts at
$4,900. The company offers a 14-day trial period, and trade-in policy on all
instruments, as well as a flexible payment plan and full warranty.
Adds French, "Our customers have been so pleased to discover how quickly the
instruments begin to change in their very hands, developing noticeably even
after just a few short days -- this is a sign of great quality in an instrument,
and I think they look forward to hearing just how great they may become."

quality instruments for rental and purchase. When searching for the best
instruments for this purpose, we found that no instrument lines then available
fulfilled all our high criteria: exceptional sound, high quality workmanship,
uniqueness of appearance, specifications meeting or exceeding those set by MENC,
ease of playing, and affordability. We decided that in order to assure that we
could supply these instruments to our customers, we had to design them
ourselves. StringWorks is a family-owned company with offices in Wisconsin and
