Review Videos

This is the Holstein Bench Guarneri del Gesu "Vieuxtemps." Our modern replica is modeled after one of the last violins built by Bartolomeo Giuseppe Guarneri which gained its name after being owned by the Belgian 19th century violinist Henri Vieuxtemps. The instrument was later used by Yehudi Menuhin, Itzhak Perlman, Pinchas Zukerman, and most recently Anne Akiko Meyers. This instrument has been refined by our head luthier Felix Manuel Perez Cuza, and this is currently the only instrument in this template we have, so this is the exact instrument you will be receiving upon purchase.

    Plays like an antique Italian violin

    I’ve played many expensive Italian violins. Unfortunately I can’t afford them. I have to say that the violin by Fiddlershop plays just as well as they do and I can only imagine how much better it will sound with time. The lower register and the upper register is complex and rich. Fantastic violin!!
