"Made in 1743, just one year before ''del Gesù's" tragically early death. The Carrodus is considered to be in the list of Guarneri's most spectacular violins, it is a fine companion to Il Cannone; they share distinctive features, mainly its powerful appearance, exalting ''del Gesù's'' most imaginative and creative epoch.The soundholes are unique, asymmetrical, and more elongated, typically of Guarneri's late work. Its arching shows a bit of influence of the Brescia school and it's fuller than others from the same year. The scroll's bold and robust appearance, just like Il Cannone, imprints ''del Gesù's'' expressive work." Luiz Amorim
With a sensitive eye to nature’s shapes and textures, Luiz dedicates his career in the search for a complete and powerful sound in his instruments, together with the investment in impeccable finishing and aesthetics, imitating the style of the old masters.Learn more
