No.20, Violin

'JOHN McARTHUR'

For this my 20th instrument I returned to the Stradivari 1718 model I used at the outset, to touch base so to speak.

Since its first few days of life it has shown promise - lively, capable of a wide dynamic range and the richness of the lower register spreading already to the A string as I play it in. At the top it is clear and precise - I hope a REAL player comes along to try it out before too long!

The varnish has reddish tones which look especially good in natural light, and as always has been difficult to capture with the camera.
