This instrument is part of the Contemporary Violin & Bow Maker 2017 Exhibition & Sale, Los Angeles.
This handsome Guarneri del Gesu model violin is covered with a rich dark red-brown varnish that has been lightly antiqued and shaded by the maker. This violin is in new condition.
My passion for music led me to double bass studies and later to violin making at The North Bennet Street School in Boston. Broadening my experience in the studios of Sam Zygmuntowicz and William Monical, I opened my own studio in Boston in 1991.
Since 2003 I have collaborated with David Polstein making violas and cellos. Our violas were awarded two silver medals and a certificate from The Violin Society of America.
I became a member of The American Federation of Violin and Bow Makers in 1994 and have served on The Board of Governors. For more than fifteen years I have been a regular substitute instructor for The North Bennet Street School, and also served as an advisor to the violin making program.
As with all high-end instruments and bows, we recommend that you make an appointment to audition this violin at our shop in southern California before committing to the purchase of this violin.
