Product Description

This is the instrument that many of our customers have been waiting for. Over $100,000 of design research, consumer research and technical R&D went into the new Adventurer IIb Travel/Backpacker Violin. This instrument was designed by Dr. Don Rickert of Don Rickert Design, who is well-known internally for design of travel, backpacker and historic kit fiddles (also known as pochettes). While just over 3 inches wide, The Adventurer IIb has the same scale length as a full-size violin or fiddle and is played with a full-size bow. Normally an option for this instrument, the clamp-on shoulder rest adaptor, invented by Dr. Rickert, makes the Adventurer IIb ergonomically identical to a standard violin. The player can use the shoulder rest of his or her choice, such as a Kun or Wolf. The Adventurer IIb can be set up for either violin playing or fiddle playing. Wittner planetary-geared pegs are a popular option ($99). The choice tone woods, Western Red Cedar, walnut and well-flamed curly maple, combined with Patent-Pending internal baffling, a state-of-the art bass bar of our design and sound-post (designed to stay put, yet is easily adjustable by any violin shop), tuned bass and mid-range ports, as well as other trade secrets, make the Adventurer IIb's sound unbelievably powerful and responsive. It is actually louder than most conventional violins, allowing the player to hold their own in jam sessions they might encounter in their travels. One can easily find video of this instrument being played on the popular video websites.
