Holstein Traditional violins: handcrafted in our select VSA award-winning workshop. These instruments are made from the high quality European tonewoods; select spruce for the top and select maple for the back and ribs of the instruments. Our Holstein Traditional 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 patterns and dimensions of the wood, as well as the varnish, are copied from the originals to achieve the same tonal qualities. This is a replica of the original Guarneri Cannon Violin. Niccolò Paganini passed on his Guarneri del Gesù violin ‘Il Cannone’ (The Cannon) to the City of Genova, which received the instrument from Paganini’s son Achille in 1851, eleven years after Paganini’s death. For over a century it was carefully conserved by the Genovese authorities and rarely played; this has given us a priceless gift of a masterpiece in astonishingly pure condition.
