Standing atop the violin world alongside only Stradivari, Giuseppe Guarneri, known as "del Gesu" from his labels, was not well known in his lifetime. His violins came into their own, more than sixty years after the master's death, with Paganini's pioneering fiery, virtuoso playing. We are pleased to offer a careful reproduction of one of del Gesu's finest violins, "The Kreisler", after famed 20th century violinist, Fritz Kreisler. Like the original, the varnish is lustrous and dark, with some of the finest antiquing we have seen, matching the violin's dark, complex and powerful tone. This fine German reproduction is, in every way, a tribute to the master.

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 aethetics and tone of the original, and are sure to please the deserving student for years to come.

Sorry, no backorders or in-home trials, and at these prices we cannot accept trade-ins or offer financing plans. All instruments carry the SHAR 30-day return privilege, one- year guarantee, and 100% trade-in credit.

    Clean sound

    I've recently tried many violins from around the world at this level. This is by far best sounding (not necessarily loudest) violin. It's clear, crisp, and resonates clean at all frequencies.
