Jan Van Rooyen 1742 Guarneri copy
A Jan Van Rooyen Guarneri custom. Ebony fittings, strong orange ground, Evah Pirazzi and Obligato strings. One piece back.
Throaty and excitable with pronounced overtones. Like a prized racehorse in need of the right jockey to command to victory. Endless layers of tone and dynamics can be pulled forth, from the softest sweets to the most guttural roar.
A video example of this violin can be seen below.
