Stradivarius vs. Del Gesu
Although I build my instruments based from many different makers, I focus most of my attention making Stradivarius and Guarneri Del Gesu violins. They end up sounding quite different once they are completed but both have a great sound to them! The Stradivarius violins end up with a very bright, direct sound. While the Del Gesu has a warmer, mellow tone.
Here are two violins that I am currently building, one Stradivarius, the other Guarneri Del Gesu…
Can you tell which is which!?!
