This violin is made by Fiddlershop resident violin maker and teacher Peter White in 2019 and is based on the general Stradivarius template. This is Peter's 254th instrument, and the 2nd violin made entirely right here at Fiddlershop in Pompano Beach, FL.
This violin is crafted from the highest quality spruce and maple, and is constructed to perfection from the inside and out.
The back of the violin is crafted from two pieces of maple of excellent quality with a somewhat regular flaming of medium width, descending from the center joint to the edges. The back plate is sourced from some of the hardest maple Peter encountered, and is slightly heavier than some of his other backplates. The oil varnish is light orange-brown and is replicating the look of Stradivari's violins.
This beautiful violin is further set up to perfection by Fiddlershop's Master Luthier Anders Martinez Bilva.
- The fingerboard is shaped from the finest piece of ebony.
- The bridge is a hand-carved professional level Despiau Three Tree, fitted perfectly to the instrument.
- The fittings are made out of high-quality ebony.
- The strings are currently Thomastik Vision, with a Westminster 27.5 gauge E-string.
The tone is wonderfully full, and round with a robust projection, it plays very effortlessly, and responds excellently.
This violin is sold with Fiddlershop's lifetime structural warranty and comes with lifetime free adjustments.
