This is a brand new Holstein Workshop Soil Stradivarius Violin that has been fitted with Wittner Finetune Geared Pegs: save $100 on the installation fee!

Holstein Workshop violins are handcrafted by one experienced luthier in our select VSA award-winning workshop. The quality of workmanship goes far beyond anything else we’ve seen in this price range. The tops are made of fine quality Italian spruce, and the back and ribs from Bosnian maple (100+ year old wood, aged and dried a minimum of 10 years). Our Holstein Workshop 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 quality 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The Soil Stradivarius violin was originally made in 1714 by Antonio Stradivari.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 Workshop violins are setup with premium quality fittings and strings to bring the most out of the instrument. The Despiau “Three Tree” bridge is hand-carved and fitted to perfection by our luthiers during the setup process.
