The very finest instrument we offer to honor the original “Kreisler” 1730 Guarneri del Gesu: personally hand crafted by multi VSA award winning luthier, using now extremely rare material ( 30 yrs plus Italian Spruce and Bosnian Maple ). Masterfully hand tuned and graduated plate and bass bar, to assure the deep, powerful and projective tone. Oil Italian formula varnish with aging treatment that’s beneficial to plate vibration and overall resonance.
A deep, powerful, resonant sounding violin with superb sweet and singing higher register, tremendous volume and depth, full body vibration and powerful projection. Sonorous voice with deep and dark lower register, excellent overtone that carries the projection in distance, while having a warm mellow tone at the ear. A fine individual artistic work done by competition winning luthier, for serious professional usage.
This level private stock VSA instrument has been used by renowned violinists, professionals, and serious collectors. True professional instrument with the serious soloist tone, and still at a player friendly price.
**Due to the rarity of aged tonewood, this #173 will be the last Private Stock “VSA” series listed at current price. There will be a price increase on the upcoming one starting 2022.
