The Tippecanoe (Donnie’s Signature Model)


SKU: DR100 Categories: ,

Product Description

The Donnie Reis Tippecanoe Violin is the first of many European violins in the instrument line, made in an affiliate shop in Romania and then serviced by hand in the New York shop. The Tippecanoe bridges your player from their student instrument to a more advanced violin. This is Donnie’s signature violin he uses to play shows when he is on tour. The Tippecanoe has been to multiple stages with Donnie spanning the world from Afghanistan entertaining US troops to the 45th Presidential Inauguration in Washington D.C. The Tippecanoe is varnished in a golden brown antique spirit finish and strung with Thomastik Dominants that make the violin sound rich and vibrant. As with all of his violins, it is serviced to his specifications, and includes his built-in pick-up system. This makes the instrument transition easily from acoustic to plug-in and playable from the orchestra to a rock stage.
