"“Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.”" -Plato



Endeavour electric violins are hand-crafted to quality specifications of The String Workshop.
The ENDEAVOUR "Eclipse" series electric violins are hand carved and hollow bodied. The outfit Includes violin, carbon fibre bow, case, and rosin.
These violins stand out from other brands of 'cheap' and 'low-spec' electric violins which unfortunately swamp today's market. Endeavour electric violins are built to higher spec requirements, and produce an alive, clear and resonance which exceeds the tone of other electric violins in this price range. Made from select and seasoned tonewoods, hand crafted, and then carefully lacquered. They then undergo thorough quality control checks before being sent to New Zealand. Once they arrive in New Zealand, they are again inspected and evaluated for quality. Each instrument is then personally set-up by Phil Whitehead and professionally adjusted for perfect playability, and for the most clear and 'sizzling' tone. 

New Zealand's entertainers agree; Endeavour electric violins are excellent instruments.
