Rudoulf Doetsch 701
My personal violin, the Doetsch is based on a Guarneri del Ges who some argue to be one of the greatest violin makers in the world and his violins truly have a flair of their own. This model is constructed from European tonewoods, select woods which contain specific tonal qualities other woods don't possess. This instrument is remarkably even across all four strings, producing a reliable, similar tone on all strings.
Though the E string doesn't quite match the rich tone and brilliance of the lower strings, this can be minimized by having dominant lower strings and a brighter, gold E string. This minor upgrade is a small price to pay for a high quality, and affordable instrument. Though it comes with basic black fittings, these can be easily upgraded for aesthetic value, if desired.
