View Full Description
Antonio Stradivari has become one of the most renowned violin craftsmen of all time. The Cessol was originally created in 1716 with the purpose of being playable, but able to create an articulate voicing when played skilfully. The original has been regarded as one of Stradivari’s finest instruments, and set the foundations for countless violins inspired by it. This interpretation of the original has all the classic elements, but with the benefit of a modern setup and build quality. This Cessol model is ideal for advancing students requiring a sound and feel tot ake them to the next level.
The use of maple and spruce is a tried and tested combination used in superior quality violins. This combination produces a focused, powerful sound with plenty of body and tonal warmth, which will only improve over time. The woods are hand selected based on their age and narrowness of grain, before being hand carved for a sound and appearance full of heritage. The distance between the grain affects the resonance of the instrument, with a narrower grain resulting in a more responsive, full bodied and weighted sound with a strong tonal core. The maple back and sides help provide a hard-wearing violin that works with the narrow grain spruce, to provide a unique instrument with incredible response, projection and full tonal body.
