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.
