The finest premium aged European tonewoods are reserved for Nicolo Gabrieli Virtuoso violins. Highly skilled European master luthiers prepare these instruments to achieve exceptional tonal characteristics even before the Gabrieli Shop in the States further refines, graduates and play tests each instrument, honing each to perform to its individual potential prior completion.
Hand applied pigment colors and their own proprietary varnish enhance the beautiful tonewoods, and final set up with Despiau bridge, Pirastro Evah strings, and contribute to their extraordinary performance.
Just as Guadagnini sought to achieve the overall tonal balance of the Strad and a degree of the projection of the Guarneri, this, too, is the objective of the Nicolo Gabrieli Shop, striving for in their Guadagnini model violin — a perfect balance of tone and projection suited to the high level orchestral player.
