The music of Sara Watkins, one of our customers, is well worth the listen. In a word: Awesome.

The Pressenda copy is off to its new home. Here is to centuries of making beautiful music. Thank you to Jim Warren for the Moennig tailpiece and to Bill Watson for the vintage Hill pegs and end button. #laphilharmonic #violin #Violinmaker #Pressenda #benchcopy #bosnianmaple #patina

Two different chisel shapes for the back volute. This is the tighter round and then a flatter curve to blend them together. ‪#‎scroll‬ ‪#‎Violinmaker‬ ‪#‎violin‬ ‪#‎strad‬ ‪#‎bosnianmaple‬ ‪#‎carlbecker‬ ‪#‎bergonzi‬
