Gatchell Innovations is a maker of carbon fiber violins and cellos. They currently offer a limited line of affordable instruments for students through advancing levels of play. Their cellos and violins have a rich full sound that can fill a room. They are made from an advanced acoustic carbon fiber material that responds and resonates better than traditional tonewoods. Our student level players tell us they can hear and feel very small changes they make in their technique. This gives them the feedback they need to improve their playing skill. For more advanced players the responsiveness and power are impressive and will allow you to leave your precious wooded instrument at home when the environmental conditions could be harmful. Never worry about the heat, rain, sun, humidity or cold again. Every player of traditional wood violins or cellos should consider owning a Gatchell Innovation carbon fiber instrument.
