Violinists around the world are fascinated with the violins of Giuseppe Guarneri "Del Gesu", with their unique f-hole design, overall shape, and boldly carved scrolls adding to the mystique of the tone they produce.
David was able to find woods that nearly perfectly match that of the original, which is a model from 1741, and this instrument is incredibly striking visually and tonally. It is the perfect violin for the budding professional violinist, wanting a suitable concert violin that will continue to improve for as many years as he/she plays it, and many more. David's instruments now sell for quite a bit more than our asking price.
Tonally, this violin exhibits outstanding warmth on the lower strings in particular, with a rich, clean yet dense tone throughout. It is highlighted by excellent solo qualities with tremendous complexity, and the power and projection is very good. Edmund states the violin speaks well and is forgiving to play. [Edmund's notes]
