Inspired by old world craftsmanship and the artistry of Italian
design, Palatino takes its name from a central hill in Rome where
ancient emperors built their palaces. It is from these origins that
provide Palatino its passion for incredibly crafted and meticulously
detailed musical instruments.
Since 1994, Palatino has been devoted to bringing together the
beauty of tradition with the strength of contemporary technology to
classic instruments for the world to enjoy.
Palatino’s line of string instruments include violins, violas,
cellos and basses, most of which are hand-carved and offered in golden
brown or oil varnish finishes. Palatino violins were the top selling
student violins in 2003, signifying the brand’s strong commitment to
the educational market.
After ten years of continued success, Palatino reintroduced its line
of wind instruments in 2004 with a family that included trumpets,
clarinets, flutes and saxophones. Redesigned trumpets available with
nickel/silver valves and saxophones with die cast keys were just some
of the new items developed for the market. The glorious line of winds
matched Palatino’s efforts for quality, durability and affordability of
musical instruments.Palatino VB-015-BK Billy Bass Features:
