About This Item

An outstanding example of the work of Jordan Hess, displaying his bold and exuberant style. The two piece quarter sawn maple back of medium flamed maple is configured at an upward angle from the center joint. The top is of clear grained straight spruce of fine to medium width. Medium red-brown varnish over a golden ground, in the Cremonese style, with skilled and tasteful shading.

Jordan Hess is a young maker working in Salt Lake City, Utah. His early training was in his native Indianapolis, working with a well known shop at a very early age. More formal training took place at the Violin Making School of America, in Salt Lake City, under Charles Woolf, Aubrey K Alexander and Sanghoon Lee. He went to work immediately afterward at the shop of John Young. Today, he heads his own workshop in Salt Lake City.

Hess models his instruments on the works of the Cremonese masters, but he is not a slave to duplicating them. Instead, he has carefully studied the very origins and roots of the masters, capturing the best of their work not by copying, but by adhering to very intricate standards. With a passion in acoustics and geometry, Hess has developed his own patterns based on geometric principles, interpretations of the great masters of the past, but with the foundation of modern scientific principles applied. Using this uncompromising approach, every piece of wood is subject to the same analysis, before it is selected to become a Jordan Hess instrument.
