Scott Cao's 850 Series violins are part of the most well received violins in the history of our store. They are completely handmade and offer what we feel to be the best value on the current string market. The 850 models feature Italian Spruce tops, select Bosnian Maple back & sides, Dominant strings, Aubert bridge, Ebony fingerboard and pegs and a complete professional setup.
This model 850 is based on the violin known as the "Cremonese". The 850 Cremonese offers a very colorfully rich tone.
|History of the "Cremonese" circa 1715|
The "Cremonese" Violin is one of Stradivari's greatest masterpieces. Made during his "Golden Period", it was once owned by the famous violinist Joseph Joachim but was returned permanently to the Italian city of Cremona in 1961. In choice wood, the pattern, the arching , the varnish, and the sound - every aspect is proof of Stradivari's great genius. The instrument has instired some of the greatest makers in history and continues to be an inspiration today.
