Carlo Antonio Testore

From the very first time I have seen this violin published in a booklet I decided to make this model. Two months later I had my first one ready and I was impressed. Some customers don’t even touch it since it looks so rude. But the sound it makes is something close to a Guarneri with a more specific character. So, it is definitely not like a Guarneri, yes, it is a Testore. Over the years I have tried to change in one or another direction but the specific Testore sound always has been very clearly recognizable for me. I just love this one. And probably my customers as well.
The Original is in a collection of Aristide Versari, exhibited in Venice.
