Review Videos

This instrument had some varnish damage on the back. We have added some varnish to fix the area which has given it a slightly antiqued appearance. The appearance is no longer perfect, but this new violin still sounds great.

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.
