Holstein Traditional violins: handcrafted in our select VSA award-winning workshop. These instruments are made from the high quality European tonewoods; select spruce for the top and select maple for the back and ribs of the instruments. Our Holstein Traditional violins are made in various replicas and copies of violins made by the old masters, such as Stradivari, Guarneri del Gesù, Amati, and Maggini. The patterns and dimensions of the wood, as well as the varnish, are copied from the originals to achieve the same tonal qualities.

This is our wonderful replica of the original Amati violin made in 1662. Though nearly all of his instruments show unsurpassed attention to precision and detail, Nicolò Amati's violins followed a relatively small pattern, with a big belly (high arch rising nearly to a ridge in the center of both the front and back of the instrument). It's smaller body design makes this a popular choice amongst more petite violinists as it's less cumbersome to get around the instrument when playing in the higher positions.

The Amati still maintains a healthy projection, and is favored for its warm and sweet tone.

The Setup

Holstein Traditional violins are setup with quality fittings and strings to bring the most out of the instrument. The Despiau “Three Tree” bridge is hand-carved and fitted to each individual instrument by our luthiers during the set-up process.

New Traditional Amait and 3* Holstein Bow

Amazing, knowledgeable, thoughtful, patient, helpful and professional people. Great organization. I just recently got a 'Traditional Amati' violin, bow, case and accessories and am thrilled. It is opening up and sounding so good. It is beautiful and if possible, even more so than the pictures and video. The 3* Holstein bow is a dream to use. Shipping was fast and everything arrived in perfect condition as their packing is such that I've never seen better. Great products, warranties, service and attention to detail. Everyone wants and works to give the very best selection and buying experience possible. They will follow through and check in with email through mailing & delivery and after to assure satisfaction. I'm enjoying the equipment and called yesterday to discuss what product (shoulder & chin rests) and some other things would best meet my needs. Christina took all the time needed to discuss in depth and never seemed rushed or impatient and is a pleasure to do business with. I thank them all for everyone's help in assuring this experience is a wonderful one to remember with pleasure and my enjoyment of what I ordered. I look forward to future shopping with the folks at Fiddlershop. My Best wishes.

Beautiful instrument but not for me

I played the Amati for a few weeks and found that iy did not suit me although it was a beautiful and well constructed violin. I have returned it and will keep looking.
