About This Item

Created by Guarneri del Gesu in 1742, this instrument is perhaps the finest and most well known violin in the world. It was given to a young Paganini by a General Pino and remained Paganini's only concert instrument for the rest of his life. Aptly named "Il Cannone violino" (the Cannon violin) by Paganini, it is renowned for its matchless projection of sound and dark tonal quality. This superb reproduction is made for us in Bulgaria and finished in the USA.

The very best works by the greatest Italian masters transcend even art and become sublime possessions that are cherished through the ages. Now, we are proud to introduce our tribute to these legends. These masterpieces are built by hand with the guidance of the world's leading master violin makers. We traveled to Germany, China and other far away places and worked directly with these makers, the result being the "Collector's Series" instruments that echo both the visual aestetics and tone of the original, and are sure to please the deserving student for years to come.
