Linea Macchi, Stradivari
Shipping calculated at checkout.
I love strange models such as Testore or Guarneri Ole Bull, but a well made Stradivari Model is always a big pleasure. Because Stradivari is and will be the perfection in violin making. A perfection in style of making as well as perfection in sound. Power, beauty and projection with superb playability create the right combination to pay the right respect to one of the best makers in the past.
Stradivari is a Guaranty for Italian perfection.
Always a great choice!
General information regarding my Linea Macchi:
The belly, back, ribs and head are hand made by expert makers that Master Russ knows personally and appreciates for their skills.
The critical areas of the instrument construction that present greater difficulty are personally worked on by Master Russ in his workshop in the centre of Cremona, in Via Macchi. This ensures that the instrument will have acoustic qualities of the highest levels.
Master Russ establishes the criteria for the correct thicknesses and measurements for the belly, back and the other elements that have a fundamental impact on the instrument sound for every instrument. These include the placement and shaping of the bassbar, the correct positioning of the neck joint in order to ensure a balanced sound across the four strings, and a perfect set-up that guarantees the best sound possible for every individual instrument.
Finally, following antique traditions, the varnish can be either antiqued or in the non-antiqued Cremonese style.
Linea Macchi satisfies the needs of professionals.
