The Holstein Workshop Cannone 1743 Violin is inspired by the "Il Cannone" violin made in 1743 by Guarneri Del Gesú. This violin is handmade by one master luthier, but varnished by another luthier. Instruments at this level are sourced from higher quality tonewoods compared to the Traditional level instruments.

The Holstein Workshop Cannone 1743 Violin is setup in our shop by our Master Luthier and undergoes our famous 10-point inspection before it's tested and shipped.

Known as "Il Cannone" (the Canon) for the powerful and sonorous quality of its tone, it was the favorite instrument of Nicolò Paganini. Crafted by the renowned Cremonese violin maker Giuseppe Guarneri (known as del Gesù), this instrument is considered one of his masterpieces. The violin has distinct features that set it apart from modern instruments, including a slightly shorter and thicker sound box, and a markedly curved neck. Its tone is distinctly bright, yet full. It's an excellent choice for all playing styles.

  • European spruce top and select maple back, sides, and scroll - dried 10+ years
  • Oil-varnished similarly to the 1735 Guarneri
  • Highest quality Ebony Fittings
  • Select quality Ebony fingerboard
  • Hand-carved professional level Despiau 3-tree or Holstein Deluxe Bridge
  • Strings depends on what we think works best with the specific violin!

Every Holstein instrument undergoes our famous 10-point inspection!

Dimensions
Length of back: 35.4 cm
Upper bout: 16.8 cm
Middle bout: 11.1 cm
Lower bout: 20.7 cm

Chapter 03 - A copy of a Guarneri with a wonderful sound

Studying with this violin is so easy and wonderful, if you can afford it and want to have a copy of a Guarneri I recommend this violin. I wish I had begun my studies with Him! Now I can not stop talking about Mike and Pierre you were an angel and gave me a speechless gift with this violin. I still can not understand how wonderful this violin is and I would not have been able to pick it up without the best help and care, attention and incredible care from Fiddlershop! Thank you very much. You are the best of the best.

My new Holstein Workshop Cannone violin.

This violin is a joy to play! It is very responsive, wonderful tone, and projects that sound clearly. The set up was done just the way I like it. Beautiful instrument. Thank You for a job well done!

Chapter 02 - A copy of a Guarneri with a wonderful sound

Speaking of the case, bow and strings, I'm speechless, I got a wonderful case that protects the entire violin in a soft and very safe way, with a place for 4 bows and a tube to keep the strings. A large compartment for extra strings and sheet music. The strings that were on the instrument are wonderful, came with Evash Pirazzi and a two-star Holstein bow, balance with a sensational wood that vibrates along with the instrument, a very positive point, recommended for anyone looking for an arch, both for price and for delivery and quality of the bow. Lastly I want to talk about the violin, above all it surpassed my expectations with well defined bass sounds, soft tone, many harmonics, your notes fill the environment, and the photos on the website I can say do not do justice to the violin and the sound that Comes from it is simply fantastic! Every time I play, it opens more and more, and look I've changed the Strings for Steel Strings to open the sound faster and the quality continues to amaze me. The sound I have of Strings G and D is simply indescribable, my teacher who plays the 4th best orchestra in my country, he said that it would be wonderfully well accepted in an orchestra of my violin, that is, that I had a fantastic violin to study and evolve every day. Before and not least, could not help but mention the finish, the woods, textures and varnish of this violin is incredible.

First of all, I would

First of all, I would like to thank the entire Fiddlerman Family, for their care, for their attention, for their affection and, above all, for the love transmitted in each service, in every detail they have with each client, with me it was no different. First, my English is not native, if you have any error sorry.\r\n\r\nI would like to start talking about care and sending the instrument. I live in Brazil, in a country where deliveries are slow and often not taken care of as they should, but the instrument arrived perfect, all right, adjusted and ready to play, my only job was to remove the packaging and tune the instrument. The 10 points that the Fiddlershop promises on the website and in their store are strictly complied with, I did all the tests and from the distance and the transport I took it to a friend Luthier who praised the instrument and who had nothing to adjust. I give 5 stars total to the Fiddlershop with the care, and astonish the most impressive the bridge was perfectly in place without 1 millimeter outside, lots of palms and compliments.\r\n\r\nSpeaking of the case, bow and strings, I'm speechless, I got a wonderful case that protects the entire violin in a soft and very safe way, with a place for 4 bows and a tube to keep the strings.
