Tres Amigos 2020 Visual Diary
Jeremyamoto posted a topic in The PegboxHi All, I’m privileged to be the owner of a Tres Amigos violin (2013, Strad Model) made by Ryan Soltis, Antoine Nedelec, and Jeff Phillips for Julie Reed-Yeboah’s contemporary violin exhibition in New York. Every year (theoretically, ) the trio of first-class makers go through rotations of who does what. In the case of my current violin, the scroll/varnish is by Ryan, the back and ribs are by Antoine, and the top is by Jeff. After they completed three Strad models, of which mine is the second, they moved on to Del Gesu models. When the time for the second DG model came around, which would be the twin to mine in terms of who made what, I had expressed a lot of interest in the fiddle as a companion to my current Strad. Fast forward to 2020 and here we are with the fiddle completed! When I asked the trio if they would be okay with me posting the pictures, the condition was that I give Antoine a mohawk in one of them. VOILA.
