Stradivari Model 1704

This one is a true classic: a model from Antonio Stradivari’s early golden period. It features well-balanced, fine proportions, swung arching, and a graceful scroll.

We are really fond of this violin model, as all our 1704 violins “like to be played”, all dynamics can be shaped easily with minimum effort, and in addition they always have an easy response.

It is thus equally suitable for tracing the delicate melodic lines of chamber music as well as robust solo passages in forte.

We model this violin after three original Stradivari violins from the same period, having complete notes, outlines, photos, plaster casts and CT scans of these in our archives: the "Sleeping Beauty" (1704), "Betts" (1704) and  "Conte Fontana" (ex- Oistrakh, 1702)
