Gareth Ballard, del Gesu 'Ole Bull'

This violin is an amazing copy of the 1744 Ole Bull del Gesu, one of Guarneri's last works. This violin excels as a copy in two main ways: the varnish captures the texture and brilliance of the original; and Gareth has re-created the gutsy sound as well. This is a powerful instrument which would relish the task of soaring above a big romantic orchestra.
