Violin, Colin Skofield, 2009

A full size violin that was built from the Stradivari “PG” mould of 1689. The wood and red brown oil varnish has been antiqued in the style of a historical instrument. Antiquing an instrument is time consuming work for the luthier, but an handsome alternative for the player who desires a soft and aged look. This instrument in highly responsive and nuanced. It measures 355mm and uses European tonewood.
