Influenced by early Brescian models, this standard string length violin, with a slighly enlarged body has a unique and deep tone, suitable for both modern and baroque playing (currently it is set up as a modern violin). The instrument is full of character and personalization, including highly decorative inlays on the back, and double purfling as was common for Maggini and other Brescian makers.
Completed in 2015, this violin was built with aged Bavarian Spruce and Bosnian Maple tonewoods.
