The Violin Scroll [Parts of the Violin]

The Violin Scroll [Parts of the Violin]

The scroll is the decoratively carved ‘head’ of the violin – it’s the fancy twirly bit at the top!

The scroll is typically shaped as a rolled-up spiral, known as a volute. Sometimes human or animal heads!

The scroll is the ultimate test of a luthier’s craftsmanship… it’s a chance to show off their skill and artistry!
