About the violin

This violin was made in 2010 and is inspired by the 1715 Stradivari 'ex-Joachim'.

The violin has a one piece back of attractive, highly-figured maple with ribs and scroll to match. The front is two pieces of straight-grained spruce which widens towards the flanks. The varnish is golden-amber in colour and the violin has been antiqued.

The violin has a length of back of 357 mm.

How does it sound?

This violin is a predictable, reliable instrument which produces a very stable and even sound. The upper register is especially brilliant and projecting.


Having been played extensively by an excellent musician, this violin recently returned to Colin to ensure it is ready for sale. The violin is therefore in excellent condition.
