2015, J. Derbyshire, Golden Period Stradivari Model
My third violin, a golden period stradivari model. Extremely well rounded sound combined with a real character and depth of expression. The varnish is stylised, but I'm very happy with the result. It took several months of application and removal to reach the desired effect, and around six months in total to build.
This instrument is a joy to play, and I used it as my main instrument for some time after its completion. This means it's been well played in, and is well along the way in sound development. This being said, at only two years old, this instrument will continue to change and adjust with whoever is playing it. This violin is an extremely fine blank canvas, and it will be a pleasure to see it gradually fill in.
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.
