The Arco and Capriccio are made in the same workshop, exclusively offered through us in Australia. Both instruments are hand-carved and come with ebony finger board. The bridges and sound posts for both instruments are equally well cut and adjusted in our onsite workshop, and the bows are equal as well.
The varnish of Capriccio is brushed on to the instrument whereas in case of the Arco the varnish is sprayed on. The Capriccio shows some modest maple figuration ("flames") which is more expensive for the makers. The Capriccio comes with upgraded strings (Maestro Strings) and the workmanship is more refined.
Having said this, the Arco has proven to produce an amazingly pleasant sound, and for the budget-conscious customer it is a very satisfactory solution. All violins come with light-weight case, bow and rosin.
