After Pietro Guarneri of Mantua – 2018

Violin after Pietro Guarneri of Mantua 2018

A very interesting model that works wonderfully. Discreetly wider and shorter than a Strad, the model of Pietro Guarneri of Mantua (Giuseppe ”del Gesu”’s uncle) can give plenty of resources, both in power and warmth. Sound-wise, this high-arched violin is quite flamboyant and has a compact, pregnant and incisive sound, with characteristic ”guarnerian” warmth. This violin is made outside my commission list. Available for sale.
