About the violin

This violin was made in 2018 and is modelled after the instruments of Stradivari. It has been fully antiqued and shaded, lending the violin the air of a much older instrument. Linus has antiqued the instrument in a very pleasing way, softening the varnish and giving it a delicate craquelure on the back.

The violin has a two piece back of book-matched maple and a two piece front of straight-grained spruce which widens towards the flanks. The varnish is golden brown in colour, laid over a lighter golden ground. The violin has a length of back of 356 mm.

How does it sound?

The violin has a well-balanced sound with a character and a resonance that goes right across the instrument. The instrument projects very well with a light bow stroke, producing a very lovely sound with little work.


The violin is in original mint condition.
