The Cessol

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 to take them to the next level.

Full Size Violin

This 4/4 size Stradivarius Violin is the ideal fit for most players - adults and older children can enjoy the comfortable fit of this instrument. Worry no more about adjusting the instrument to your size and concentrate solely on your musical preparation.

Stunning Tonewoods

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.

Pirastro Obligato String Setup

Providing musicians with a comfortable feel and endless tonal opportunities, the Pirastro Obligato strings are a renowned favourite of musicians worldwide. Designed as a truly innovative synthetic core string with moderate tension, the Obligato produces a clear sound full of subtle complexities. They're insensitive to humidity and temperature change, whilst offering a tone and feel similar to gut. These strings have been specifically selected to match this violin model.
