This violin is made by Fiddlershop resident violin maker and teacher Peter White in 2013 (finished in 2019) and is based on a generic Stradivari template. This is Peter's violin number 256 in order.
This violin was started in New Mexico in 2013 from the highest quality spruce and maple, and is constructed to perfection from the inside and out. It's beautifully varnished with a lightly shaded brow/gold/red oil varnish and is mildly antiqued. The violin was completed here at Fiddlershop in 2019 when Peter White was in residence.
The tone can be described as open and resonant. It's suitable for an orchestral musician from college to professional.
- The fingerboard is shaped from the finest piece of ebony.
- The bridge is a hand-carved professional level Milo Stamm, fitted perfectly to the instrument.
- The fittings are made out of high-quality ebony.
