2015, J. Derbyshire, Golden Period Stradivari Model
What strikes me about this instrument is that it just plays - it has a strength to its tone that I find really significant. A depth and a warmth seems to burst out in every piece that's played upon it, and this violin is brimming with character and energy.
Like any new instrument, this violin will shift and change in the hands of a new player, becoming an instrument that is absolutely yours. The foundations of this very fine violin are already in place with an excellent, expressive sound that is strong and penetrative but not in the least piercing.
If you are interested in this instrument or another, please do get in contact with Jonathan via email or telephone. At this point we can arrange a no obligation testing session and see where we are.
It's important to me that each person who comes to me leaves with something they're absolutely happy with. With this in mind, I work within a six month returns policy. If you find the instrument isnt behaving as you would hope but is still in the same condition it was sold in, just get back in touch. We can discuss options and try to isolate the problem, but if this turns out to be impossible, a full refund will be given.
Shipping is available within the UK but unfortunately not worldwide (yet!)
If we ship your violin it will be protected to the very best of our abilities.
