About Linus Andersson

Linus is a Swedish/ German violin maker based in Glasgow. He studied at the Newark School of Violin Making, graduating with distinction.

We are delighted to have instruments by both Stephanie and Linus for sale.

About the violin

This violin was made in 2016 and is modelled after the instruments of Stradivari, in particular the instruments from the first decade of the 1700s. During this decade, Stradivari reverted his making style back to the Amati `Grand Pattern´ model: some of his most celebrated instruments come from this period. The combination of the rich, wine-like varnish and precise, Stradivarian corners gives this violin a distinctly Georges Chanot of Paris flavour.

The violin has a two piece back of book-matched maple of medium flame which descends gently from the centre joint. The front is two pieces of straight-grained spruce which broadens towards the flanks. As mentioned above, the varnish is a beautifully rich red colour, laid over a lighter golden ground. The violin is in original mint condition and has a length of back of 354 mm.

How does it sound?

The violin has a focussed, vintage sound which would be well paired with a broad, more relaxed bow.


The violin is in original mint condition.
