About This Item

Inspired by the 1727 Stradivarius... acclaimed as one of the finest and most perfect of this maker... The original violin was sold to Paganini in 1817 by Count Cozio di Salabue. The tone of our model is clear, articulate and sonorous. A remarkable instrument for any advancing violinist. The Paganini, made for us in China, conforms to our specifications with expert set-up performed in our Ann Arbor workshop. 4/4 only.
