Steffen Nowak, Maker of fine Violins, Violas and Cellos in baroque and modern style
Violin after Antonio Stradivari 1709 'the Viotti ex Bruce' SOLD
This is my latest interpretation of one Stradivaris' great
violins, a golden period model of excellent classical proportions and design.
For this violin some choice pieces of well seasoned wood were selected, closely following the original. A one piece back of Bosnian maple, with a fine even growth structure, and deep flames across its width. The front showing some very tight grain lines across the ff's gradually getting wider towards the flanks. The oil varnish a highly transparent warm orange red over a highly reflective golden ground.
The full size body and string length would make it suitable for most players. The initial sound trial shows it to be an even and finely balanced sound, with a dark strong bass and bright treble.
