Here she is with a new look! The original, rather dull varnish on this violin did not do justice to its other attributes, and I am happy to now present it to you (Spring 2019).
After some judicious plate-thinning this Strad model was given a rich dark hue by the application of walnut pigment, followed by a 'golden ground' and several coats of Old Wood Amber Varnish.
- and with careful adjustment of the set-up and Warchal 'Amber' strings she is ready to go.
This violin comes with an Orchestra brand carbon fibre bow (tested and approved) and a very handsome black fibreglass case with wide shoulder straps. A perfect buy for the advanced student and keen amateur player, it has a powerful voice which responds well to frequent playing (ach,don't they all?)
