About Linus Andersson

About the violin

This violin was made in 2015 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. Andersson´s violin is a successful interpretation of these so-called `Golden Period´ instruments.

The violin has a two piece back of book-matched maple, the flame descending from the flanks to the centre joint. The two piece front is of even-grained spruce and the varnish is a golden brown colour, laid over a lighter golden ground. The violin has a length of back of 353 mm.

How does it sound?

This violin is bright, colourful and projects very well. It would suit a player who likes not have to worry about spoiling the sound as it comes alive when played with vigour. Equally, this violin would make a good partner for a strong bow.


The violin is in original mint condition.
