B-stock Holstein Bench Cannone Violin (No. 208)

This instrument is brand new, but after returning from an in-home trial we noticed a series of small marks in the varnish. It can only be seen from certain angles, and otherwise the instrument is in perfect condition. 

The Holstein Bench Cannone 1743 Violin is inspired by the "Il Cannone" violin made in 1743 by Guarneri Del Gesu. This violin is bench made (handmade by one master luthier).

The Holstein Bench Cannone 1743 Violin is set up by our Master Luthier and undergoes our famous 10-point inspection before it's tested and shipped.

Known as "Il Cannone" (the Canon) for the powerful and sonorous quality of its tone, it was the favorite instrument of Nicolò Paganini. Crafted by the renowned Cremonese violin maker Giuseppe Guarneri (known as del Gesù), this instrument is considered one of his masterpieces. The violin has distinct features that set it apart from modern instruments, including a slightly shorter and thicker sound box, and a markedly curved neck. Its tone is distinctly bright, yet full.
