Violin based on the model of the ‘Cannon’ Guarneri del Gesu anno 1743
Paganini’s famous violin, made by Giuseppe Guarneri del Gesu anno 1743, and known as the ‘Cannon’, was the model for this instrument. Not only did I make this violin using the original measurements, but also paying respect to the slight distortions in the symmetry of the original instrument. The varnish is slightly imitated. The sound pays tribute to the alias ‘Cannon’, and my former master Otto Karl Schenk from Switzerland named it ‘The Bomb’.
