Review Videos

The story behind every Holstein German Virtuoso violin begins with quality selected tonewoods from the best regions of Bavaria, Austria, Switzerland, and Bosnia.  We start with wood that is over 30 years old, dried and seasoned for an additional 30 years. These violins are handcrafted with the greatest attention to detail in our German workshop that has over 25 years of experience making fine instruments. 

The Virtuoso violin is handmade by one master luthier from start to finish, and raises the standard for affordable, hand made, European instruments. While many shops are content to use German sounding trade names for instruments not even made in Europe, the Holstein Virtuoso, named for our Founder and Fiddlerman himself, Pierre Holstein, represents an exciting new era of bringing the highest quality instruments from northern Bavaria to our global customer base.

The term "Virtuoso" refers to a person who is highly skilled as a musician or other artistisc pursuit. They are often seen as possessing either outstanding natural talent, or advanced technial ability through years of hard work and dedication. 

The Holstein German Virtuoso is an excellent choice for any style and ability. The tone of each instrument is unique and generally produces exceptional tonal characteristics from very deep and profound low registers and brilliant and clear upper register.  With the power to fill an entire hall, and sensitive for even the most intimate of gatherings, the violin nimbly responds to the desires of the performer.

Violin Specifications

Top: Two pieces of narrow grain spruce from Bavaria, Germany, aged for over 30 years.
Back: Two pieces of Bosnian maple of excellent quality, seasoned for over 30 years.
Varnish: Spirit-based orange-brown with minor antiquing.
Fittings: Ebony (Standard)
Strings: Thomastik Peter Infeld or Luthier's choice

The Setup

Holstein Custom violins are set-up with premium quality fittings and strings to bring the most out of the instrument. The Despiau Three Tree bridge is hand-carved and fitted by our luthiers during the setup process to perfectly match the unique conditions of each violin. 

The soundpost, or soul of the instrument is crafted and adjusted in our shop using the highest quality spruce, and meticulously adjusted and tested before shipping to help the violin perform with the most refined tonal color and complexity.

We are extremely proud to introduce the Holstein German Series of violins, which include:

Wow - I’m in LOVE

Once again Fiddlershop has provided an outstanding instrument. My first purchase from this company was a gorgeous viola and now several years later I trusted this company to help me choose a violin. It’s so helpful to have a custom video produced comparing instruments. Thank you and BRAVI!
