This instrument has been made B-stock due to some small marks in the varnish.

What does B-stock mean?

Every now and then we receive an instrument from our workshop with a visual imperfection. The instrument might have a small nick, scratch or a discoloration in the varnish. These visual issues do not affect the performance or playability of the instrument. However, we would never put these instruments into our regular inventory.

This instrument is set up to perfection by our talented luthiers and is covered by our lifetime structural warranty.

The Holstein Traditional Red Mendelssohn, a copy of the 1720 "Red Mendelssohn" crafted by Antonio Stradivarius. This beautiful instrument features real hand-applied oil varnish and high-quality wood dried a minimum of 10 years. The back is made in two pieces and has gorgeous flaming descending from the center joint.

The Red Mendelssohn has a powerful, focused and brilliant sound, similar to the Fiddlerman Soloist, but with slightly more complexity. It's a great option for advancing players and well suited for many playing styles.

The mysterious history of the instrument became the narrative for Francois Girard's beloved film, "The Red Violin." The violin surfaced in the 1930's Berlin after having been purchased by an heir to the great composer, Felix Mendelssohn and is currently played by the soloist Elizabeth Pitcairn.

Fittings: Boxwood with Pear Wood Trim

Bridge: Hand-carved professional level Holstein 3-star Bridge

Strings: Thomastik Dominant

Every Holstein instrument undergoes Fiddlershop's Quality Setup and quality control, and is covered by a lifetime structural warranty and free adjustments.
