Violin by Marco Jian
Handcrafted violin by master maker Marco Jian. All tonewood used to make this instrument is master grade from Italy. It was hand-selected by the marker for its wonderfully flamed back which is perfectly matched to the sides, neck, and scroll. For this violin, Jian selected a Stradivari pattern of 1715 (part of the period known as Stradivari’s golden years). This violin was recently played by a number of accomplished violinists. Their comments were very consistent – great power and balance, very expressive, wonderfully warm with exceptional color.
The instrument has been professionally set up by Allen Gatchell and features: Eva Pirazzi strings, Despiau three tree Superieur bridge, and fine ebony fittings made by Bigaro & Clemente of Italy.
