Holstein Traditional violins: handcrafted in our select VSA award-winning workshop. These instruments are made from high quality European tonewoods; select spruce for the top and select maple for the back and ribs. 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.
The Holstein 'Kreisler' is a replica of Guarneri del Gesù’s masterpiece made in 1730. The original violin was played by the great violinist Fritz Kreisler as his primary concert instrument. The “Kreisler” 1730 had long been regarded as among the finest works of Guarneri's early years.
