The following violins are uniquely handmade entirely by myself, using traditional Cremonese construction techniques, on an internal mould, with meticulous attention to details that characterize either Stradivari's or Giuseppe Gurarneri "del Gesu's" instruments, and demonstrate their distinctive genius. Each has been tested by seasoned artists (both orchestral and soloists) who have wonderful reviews - please inquire. They offer players warm, easy clarity and powerful rich overtones that project without forcing. The particular models each offer something special:
1743 "Il Cannone" Guarneri del Gesu model Available my latest model (July 2022), very powerful, throaty, rich and fast response.
1715 "Titian" model Available here thoughtfully antiqued, empowers especially the soloist with a broad deep character of penetrating sound, whereas the
SOLD 1716 "Messiah" model, larger by virtue of having been made on Strad's "PG" pattern, offers an impressively robust lower register and silvery shimmering upper register.
The SOLD 1709 "Viotti" model features a scrumptious one-piece back with big, easy, balanced tone, and seductively figured maple.
1713 "Huberman" Available varnish shimmers of colorful reflectivity, its big warm sound enveloping player and listeners.
The SOLD 1735 Guarneri del Gesu "Plowden," also with one-piece back, typifies that maker's easy string length and distincitve throaty, warm tone.
While each violin offers distinctive tonal clarity, projection, and power, there is without a doubt one particular violin you will be drawn to.
