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The Soil Stradivarius violin was originally made in 1714 by Antonio Stradivari.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.
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.
Varnish: Real hand applied oil varnish
Fingerboard: Fine Ebony
Strings: Maker's choice. Standard is Thomastik Vision. We select and match the strings carefully to bring the most out of each individual instrument.
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.
