Review Videos

Made in one of our award-winning workshops, this Holstein violin is inspired by the original Antonio Stradivarius violin made in 1686. This instrument is bench made, which means that it was made individually by one of our master luthiers from start to finish.

This 'Frances Day' Cremona c. 1686 has a two-piece back with deep, wide and remarkable flaming. The quality and dimensions of the wood (as well as the varnish) are copied from the original, to achieve the same tonal qualities.

  • Structure: Top made of highest quality Italian spruce, and back of Bosnian maple
  • Varnish: Antiqued Italian oil varnish
  • Fittings: Boxwood
  • Bridge: Hand-carved professional level Despiau 3-tree or Holstein Deluxe Bridge
  • Strings: Player's or Maker's choice. We select and match the strings carefully to bring the most out of each individual instrument. For any string preference, please contact us or add a comment to your order.

Purchase includes a quality oblong violin case.

Holstein instruments go through Fiddlershop's quality control and adjustment process. We take every measure to make each instrument sound its best. They are also covered by Fiddlershop's Lifetime Structural Warranty and include free lifetime adjustments. 

Still not convinced?
You can request this violin on an In-Home-Trial, or request a personal video. If you can't decide between two models, we can record and send a comparison video for you to pick and choose. Chat with us, send us an email, or give us a call (800-595-0592) for a professional consultation.
