To create a truly great violin, it’s important to not only be beautiful, but it must also be an excellent performer.
Craftsmen dedicate time and knowledge to create instruments that reflect the best of their knowledge, using techniques passed down through generations. Every detail in the creation of an instrument is important to the luthier. We believe that no two instruments are exactly alike, even if they’re built from the same mold. An instrument represents a voice of its own, which many musicians will use to express themselves through music.
When making an instrument, some luthiers take notes and try to find a good balance between the sound and the reverberation. The most important thing is to train one’s ear and understand all nuances of this intimate moment during the making process.
As you know, a fine violin takes much more than one can think, which explains its value. The Finest picks from Mio Cannone’s collection aren’t different, each one was handmade especially.
