Pre-owned Holstein Traditional Red Mendelssohn (No. 237)

This instrument was returned as part of a trade-in. It has a few small marks in the varnish.

The Holstein Traditional Red Mendelssohn, a copy of the 1720 "Red Mendelssohn" crafted by Antonio Stradivarius. This beautiful instrument features real hand-applied oil varnish and high-quality wood dried a minimum of 10 years. The back is made of maple with gorgeous flaming.

The Red Mendelssohn has a powerful, focused and brilliant sound, similar to the Fiddlerman Soloist, but with slightly more complexity. It's a great option for advancing players and well suited for many playing styles.

The mysterious history of the instrument became the narrative for Francois Girard's beloved film, "The Red Violin." The violin surfaced in the 1930's Berlin after having been purchased by an heir to the great composer, Felix Mendelssohn and is currently played by the soloist Elizabeth Pitcairn.

Fittings: Boxwood with Ebony Trim

Bridge: Hand-carved professional level Holstein 3-star Bridge

Strings: Thomastik Vision
