This violin was built by Ornella Ceci in 2023 in the workshop of String Instrument Shop. The violin is inspired by the Stradivarius violin . The wood used comes from Bosnia (Maple/Maple +30 years old) and Italy (Fine spruce/Spruce +30 years old). Finish : Varnish (oil/alcohol) reddish/brown, old style, self composed by Ornella. Very elegant and warm sound, rich in harmonics and great performance in every nuance and position, across the entire sound spectrum. The violin was recently very well assessed in England during an exhibition of "The British Violinmaking Association" : " We tried quite a few violins that day as we walked around. Many of them were quite ordinary, however your violins had much more character and therefor much more interesting. We liked them both, and for us they would have been in the top selection"
