No.25, Violin


So, it's early August 2016 and this is my 25th instrument. Based, for sound, on the late-career Guarneri 'del Gesu' violin known as the 'Sainton', it has pronounced archings and a bold tone.

The lion head? It is a representation of a couple of sandstone lions in my home town of Dumfries which were a friendly presence in my childhood.

November 2016 update - I have just returned from Fiddle Fest in Edinburgh, where this and Violin No.23 were tested and heartily approved by several excellent players. Gypsy Jazz? Yes, please!
