Andrés Martinez Bilva Stradivarius Violin 2023
We are proud to offer this stunning violin made by our own Andrés Modesto Martinez Bilva. Andrés is our head luthier, and his craftsmanship is unparalleled. It is rare to find a violin maker who is also exceptional at setting up instruments, but Andrés is a true master.
This violin has a remarkably balanced tone. The lower register is open and commanding, while the upper register is warm and clear. The projection and playability are simply delightful.
