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 which is perfectly matched to the sides, neck, and scroll. For this particular 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 as follows: 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.
