Questions about this instrument


*Made by 2018 VSA Merit of Tone luthier ( who actually received full tone score at the competition )
*Antique replica of original Guarneri 1743 “Cannone” del Gesu

The very finest instrument we offer to honor the original Cannone del Gesu: personally hand crafted by multi VSA winning luthier, using now extremely rare material ( 30 yrs plus Italian Spruce and Bosnian Maple ) “Photograph” antiqued to faithfully recreate the true appearance of original “Cannone”. Strictly following the old Italian making method, using the inside mold, with matching arching. Masterfully hand tuned and graduated plate and bass bar, to assure the deep, dark and bold projective tone. “Joe Robson” oil varnish used, the best varnishing material in business.

Besides using already “vintage” tonewood, the violin was season dried/exposed under sunlight for 6-8 months, prior being varnished. This is one of the old Italian method only used among elite individual makers, to assure the instant vibrant, resonant tone with depth.
