Holstein Workshop Amati Violin Review
This is our wonderful replica of the original Amati violin made in 1670 - also know as the "Grand" Amati. Though nearly all of his instruments show unsurpassed attention to precision and detail, Nicolò is famous for developing the so-called Grand Pattern, which is slightly larger than the models used by Andrea and Girolamo Amati. Its larger size (about 35.6 cm in length and up to 20.9 cm in width) adds increased projection to the elegance and fine craftsmanship of this great maker's work. This exceptional replica of the Amati violin is hand-crafted from maple and spruce that has been aged at least 15 years.
Violins in this price range are typically made in larger assembly lines to reduce cost. Our workshop models however, are crafted entirely by the master luthier and a highly skilled assistant luthier.
