Holstein Bench Maggini Violin Review

Holstein Bench Maggini Violin for Customer

This Holstein violin is inspired by Giovanni Paolo Maggini's work.
Maggini would make his violins larger than average, which is a big reason why his violins have such a powerful and deep projection.

The best known maker of the Brescian school, Giovanni Paolo Maggini was born in Botticino and moved to Brescia around 1586 to train with Gasparo da Salò. After twenty years of work for da Salò, Maggini struck out on his own and began to develop his own models. His violins are based on two unique patterns, one of which is about 35.5 cm and conforms to contemporary standards for length, and the another which is significantly larger, about 37 cm. Maggini himself seems to have preferred the larger model for its powerful sound quality, and indeed the increased length may have inspired the celebrated 'Long Pattern' violins of Antonio Stradivari.

I recently purchased

I recently purchased one of these violins and all I can say is WOW. It's a darker and complex sounding with wonderful projection and very even ac cross the strings. It has wonderful tones across the spectrum but I hear some fantastic middle tones that are lacking in many violins, especially for a new un-played violin. The violin set up is fantastic and ready to go right out of the box. I got this violin as an upgrade from an intermediate violin and within a few hours of my demo I knew that it was going to stay. I've progressed as a player more in the last few weeks then I have the last few years with my previous violin. I highly recommend this violin. You won't regret it. Also the customer service was outstanding as always. My violin arrived faster then expected and was ready to be played right out of the box with just a bit of tuning needed. Thank you Fiddlershop especially Mike and Pierre) for picking out the perfect one for me.


I ordered a

I ordered a Maggini after working with the MJZ 905, which was also fabulous! The Ming was lovely to look at, but the Maggini is a feast for the eyes. It has so much character...like an old violin full of great stories. When you pick it up it is as light as air. So wonderful to hold! The strings are butter even under non professional fingers. It is actually effortless to play and because of that it is a joy to pick up, difficult to put down, and hastens the process of making music. There is no longer a battle between the musician and instrument where you have to fight for tone and clarity. If the note being played sounds off it is the musician, not the Maggini. Mine was in tune on arrival, ready to play, and amazingly has required very minimal tuning since. I have had my Maggini for just over two months now and we have become best friends attached at the shoulder. If the price dissuades you from purchasing one please reconsider.....this is a magnificent piece of singing artwork with a huge vocal range specializing in those heart arresting melancholy tones that mesmerize audiences and allow us to float away on every note. I can't imagine my life without this violin and consider my money well spent with a lifetime of great music ahead!!
