Custom Antique Guarneri Del Gesu 1743 Cannone Violin
Manufactured by US Customs Strings, this Cannone Violin copy is known for its explosive sound and beautifully applied Italian varnish. Though it's difficult to assert whether this model was truly made in Cremona tradition - a highly specialized and classic Cremona culture of violin making - this instruments forceful tone certainly supports the claim.
Paganini's cannon nickname for this particular has stuck, and defined this instrument's bold reputation. What the instrument lacks in rich and brilliant tone, it makes up for in sheer force of will and depth. Uniquely outfitted with brown fittings which complement the varnish, this violin is aesthetically striking, a trait which expertly matches its fantastic sound production.
