This violin is made by Fiddlershop resident violin maker and teacher Peter White in 2020 and is based on the general Stradivarius template. This is Peter's 5th violin made entirely right here at Fiddlershop in Pompano Beach, FL.
This violin is crafted from the highest quality European spruce and Austrian maple.
The back of the violin is one-piece, with gorgeous, deep and vivid flaming. The intensity of the wood flame is brought by Peter's use of the light box he personally constructed. Each violin spends weeks in the light box, which simulates the light of the sun, and imitates the timeless tradition that luthiers have been using by hanging violins in front of the window before varnishing.
The process of applying the oil varnish, however is Peter's distinguishing work. Completely hand made, it is a light orange-brown, with a hint of red and replicates the look and template of Stradivari's violins. The varnish will continue to harden and meld with the wood over the coming months/years, strengthening the instrument and improving the sound.
This beautiful violin was set up 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 Milo Stamm
- The fittings are made out of high-quality ebony.
- The strings are currently Thomastik PI (100)
The tone is wonderfully full, and round with a robust and very clear projection, it plays very effortlessly, and responds excellently.
This violin is sold with Fiddlershop's lifetime structural warranty and comes with lifetime free adjustments.
