Travel Violin

wipLstix are very handy travel violins invented and made by me in my shop in the southern Appalachians. The length between its bridge and nut is that of a standard violin, but the body has been minimized to maximize portability. wipLstix is a self contained unit, complete with its 1/8th size bow and inflatable chinrest, all fitting inside a 2" diameter by 24" long watertight traveling tube! The case will also nicely accommodate the chunk of round rosin of your choice.

The Wiplstix kit contains:

1 violin made with flame cherry body- (Center fiddle in image of 3) 

This flame cherry will be the last I offer of this wood. It is of exceptional beauty. The grain might not be as stable to environmental extremes, and I recommend it as a "domestic" violin over a "travel" violin where aesthetics are more appreciated)

1 watertight plastic PVC case.

Bow sold separately.

Chinrest sold separately

Shipping not included

Rosin is not included.

Wiplstix- "Cinnamon Stick" flame cherry wood

  • If you not in a hurry you can save me 10.00 Pay pal fees by paying with a personal check. The violin and case will be 395.00. (Bow and chinrest options are sold separately)
