This violin demonstrates all the hallmarks of Carlo Bergonzi’s mature style, as well as the influences of both Antonio Stradivari and Guarneri ‘del Gesù’. Made from top-quality spruce and maple, it shows the exquisite care with which Bergonzi prepared all his finest instruments.
‘Bergonzi’s varnish has a deep, subdued fire which doesn’t try to emulate the visual effects obtained by his competitors’ – Andrea Zanrè in the July 2021 edition of The Strad
Includes measurements, thickness and arching maps and life-size micro-CT scans.
