My latest violin build is another Stradivari copy… I know, surprise, surprise!
But he really was ahead of his time. The craftsmanship that you see in his work is truly incredible! And as a modern violin maker it is truly inspiring. I was fortunate enough to see a handful of Stradivari violins and get to study them first hand.
When you are up close and personal with an authentic Stradivarius violin it is almost an out of body experience!
For this violin I decided to copy the famous “Messiah” Stradivari. It is in truly remarkable condition for its age! Made in Stradivari’s “Golden Period” in 1716. It is one of the more famous Stradivarius violins in existence!
It is in near mint condition, making it ideal for a modern maker such as myself to copy, showing little to no signs of wear! I am having a lot of fun on this custom violin build, I am anxious to hear it once it is set up…
It should have a bright, powerful tone that can power through to the back of a concert hall!
