The Gliga II violin's improved timber, workmanship and strings allows the advancing pupil a new freedom of expression

All timber received into the Gliga workshop is independently graded and allocated to each craftsperson before building begins. Wood that is graded for Gliga II instruments starts to show tighter grain on the spruce for better resonance, and the maple begins to exhibit attractive flame. Naturally the better grades of wood are given to more experienced makers, so more attention can be given to the careful processes of carving and tuning the plates.

The combination of better tone wood and extra care in construction gives the Gliga II a more pleasing tone when put into the hands of the intermediate student. The flamed maple befits the increasing accomplishment of the player, and the variety of oil finishes and antiquing offered allows for freedom of expression and individuality in the recital hall.

The Pirastro Tonica strings chosen for Gliga II violas are known for their easy playability and a warm, more expressive tone compared with entry level strings. Outfits are rounded out with the popular TG Hill-style lightweight oblong case and an Articul II fibreglass bow.
