These violins are so good that we have a hard time believing that they are replicas and not fine old Italian violins. Recently we tested more than a dozen new violins and ran across the GCV Cremona replicas and knew right away that we needed to offer these instruments to our customers. We are very proud to be offering such wonderful sounding, beautifully crafted, and easy to play, instruments.
The Cannon model violin is a copy of Paganini's Giuseppe Guarneri del Gesù from year 1743, and is one of the golden era violins with a reputation as one of the best.
Eight years ago, GCV Violins started to emulate Cremonese stringed instruments skillfully according to the Cremonese models, acquiring recognition and achievement in the market. With the well-chosen original grained wood, the authentic crafting style of the curved appearance, the revived antiqued varnish, the traces left on the varnish, and the dulcet sound, the tonal characters of the instruments made by the classic masters reappear. The Cremonese Replicated Violin Series is built with unique characteristics, making them more playable, appreciable and valuable.
I have been
I have been playing bluegrass fiddle for about 6 years and wanted to upgrade to a fine violin. My old fiddle, while adequate for learning and playing, just didn't have the power and sound I was looking for. After researching the internet diligently for about a month, I found what I was looking for at Fiddlershop.com. Wow, talk about customer service and great prices! It was such a pleasure dealing with Mike. This GCV Cannon is simply awesome. At first I was a little disappointed until the strings settled in and this violin came "alive". Just like Pierre's demo, this violin not only has power when needed, but has a very sweet sound for soft playing. The E string sings like a bird from low to high position and the more I play, the better the fiddle sounds. The violin has a beautiful antique finish and as other reviews have mentioned, the online photos don't do it justice. Cheap violins from China have tarnished their craft, but makers like GCV are the real deal.
