"1742 Il Canonne" Guarneri Copy
The very best of Luthier Jan Van Rooyen's work has always been his Il Canonne copies, with many concerto wins to their various owners. This violin is no exception. Typical of the instrument to which it is based; "The Canon" lives up to its name. Velvety subtlety and roaring thunder and everything in between are waiting at your fingertips, and towering overtones all ready to burst forth. Really must be heard to be believed. Setup with carved Boxwood fittings and Rondo strings.
An example of the sound can be heard at the following link. First violin.
