A very appealing Stradivari-pattern violin from the highly-regarded Cremonese master, Stefano Trabucchi. This violin will be appreciated by a solo player, for its powerful, soaring, clear and brilliant tone. One piece quarter sawn maple back, with well-figured and defined flaming. The top is of fine-to-medium grained spruce. Beautifully-applied Cremonese varnish, in red-orange over a golden ground.

Born in 1970 in Sondrio, Italy, Stefano Trabucchi has established himself as one of Cremona’s leading masters. A graduate of the International School of Lutherie at the young age of 18, Trabucchi opened his own shop at age 22, after four years of apprenticeship. Inspired especially by the work of Stradivari, Trabucchi’s instruments exhibit the same refined workmanship, attention to detail, bold wood selection and attentive varnish work.
