A Violin by Luiz Amorim

Copy of Joseph Guarneri “del Gesù” Cannone, 1743

Cremona, 2021

A precise copy crafted by a master maker. Luiz’s careful hands and attentive eyes highlight his skills as an artisan by replicating all the precise details of the original one – not to mention the Genova’s city stamp on the back of the scroll. For us, the high point of this violin is the imponent and characteristic volute, capable of easily distinguishing this instrument from others. More

    Full description

    The wood chosen for this violin follows the figure of the original instrument. The top's spruce was carefully selected and came from Val di Fiemme, the same source 'del Gesù' used to get his wood. The two-piece back maple with medium flames is joint in a v -shape and comes from the Balkans. This cremona violin masterpiece is ready to be played and to follow you in your successful journey as a musician.
    "Named by its ex-owner, the illustrious Nicolo Paganini, this violin is known because of its power and resonant sound. This instrument is covered by a luminous reddish-brown varnish. Scratches and signs of wear accentuate the original's evidence of time and playing. Some very distinct characteristics of this masterpiece are somewhat the high sides, the imponent scroll, and a considerably curved neck. ''Il Cannone'' ranks as the greatest masterpiece of this inspired maker." Luiz Amorim
