Stradivari Model

The 1716 violin known as the “The Messiah“ is one of the most perfectly preserved Stradivaris in existence. Its outline and measurements provide the inspiration for my Stradivari model. The best Stradivaris are characterized by their laser-like projection with a certain precision and refinement of tone. Some say they portray a feminine aspect  flavored by a prevalence of higher overtones.

These images are selected from a variety of  instruments I have made of this model. I encourage you to call or email with your questions, inquiries of availability, and to arrange an audition and studio visit. Click any image to enlarge.
