The MMX BEC100 is a handcrafted student violin made from selected spruce with ebony fittings and beautifully flamed maple back and sides. Made in the Gua Fang Wang workshop in Beijing by a team of experienced luthiers, the instrument is sophisticated and elegant. Judging the quality of stringed instruments is a more subjective matter than wind, brass, or percussion, but this violin is certainly playable enough to comfortably complete all grade exams.

Compared to other entry level violins, the BEC100 has a thinner and more delicately designed bridge which makes for excellent projection and a focused singing tone. Its fingerboard, pegs, and chin rest are all made from ebony, a dark dense wood that lasts for a long time and has beautiful aesthetic qualities. Intricate purfling and an oil-based spirit varnish complete the classy vintage look.

A carbon fibre bow comes with the outfit. This increasingly popular alternative to a traditional wooden bow is lighter, better balanced, and less susceptible to warping. Each violin also has D'addario prelude strings fitted as standard, and is setup ready to play straight out of the box.

Rosin is also included and everything comes in a deluxe oblong Tom & Will case. The case contains a hygrometer and has a clip for a second bow, as well as plenty of additional storage space such as a large front compartment for sheet music and an additional space for storing a shoulder rest. The instrument is available in 4/4 or 3/4 size for younger players – if unsure, ask your violin teacher which size you should choose.
