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.

The Soil Stradivarius violin was originally made in 1714 by Antonio Stradivari. The Soil Stradivarius was considered one of his finest violins ever made. It was owned by Amédée Soil, and was named after him. It was thereafter acquired by Yehudi Menuhin and he played it from 1950 to 1986. It was then purchased by Itzhak Perlman who used this violin to record the "Cinema Serenade" soundtrack in 1997.

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.

Amazing violin!

I bought this violin a few months ago, and it truly is an amazing instrument. I highly recommend it. It has a beautiful, bright, and strong sound to it, and I'm definitely glad that I bought this violin.

Alaskan Noob scores Amazing Violin and all the extras

My experience with this lovely business was a remarkable and sheerly enjoyable journey. Somehow the Pandemic made me feel like I needed a violin at 54. Havent played since I was in the 3rd grade. I found these folks online and stalked their YouTube videos they were posting of violins being played for other folks perusal. Then after I fell super hard for this Holstein Traditional Soil Strad - with the sweetest most haunting voice, exquisite across all its registers...I called them up and nabbed it after somebody else didn't choose it. Then I requested they help me buy the rest of the stuff you would need out in the middle of nowhere in the Alaskan Wilderness with no nearby shops. And they Did it! With Grace and Patience and Im so pleased. I chose the instrument that spoke to my heart and ear and they made it all happen in the most wonderful way. I knew nothing, and they took my hand and helped me into a wonderful instrument, case, bows, all of it. You CANNOT go wrong with these folks. My lovely Violin and all its accouterments traveled safely in the arms of some FedEX folks all the way across about 5000 miles a lot of airplanes and trucks and vans and was delivered safely to me. You couldnt ask for better service. Really. Just DO IT. You wont regret it.
