A Violin by Manuel Di Landa
A Violin by Manuel Di Landa, Cremona, 2022
This Cremonese violin, made after a mid period model by Guarneri Del Gesù 1733, was crafted by the skillful hands of an experienced maker. The highlight of this violin in our opinion is the great craquelure texture on the intense coloured and antiqued varnish.More
This Cremonese violin, made after a mid period model by Guarneri Del Gesù, stands out all Di Landa's deep experience with restorations and so the constant contact with antique Italian fine violins, which makes his instruments fully inspired in and strictly crafted after such masterpieces. The top of Italian spruce from Val di Fiemme shows a regular, beautiful medium-width grain pattern through the entire plate. Ribs, neck and scroll are all made with a fine quality flamed maple, all covered with a red-brown deep coloured varnish, perfectly antiqued.
