1710 Violin


Recommended Posts


To Whom It May Concern:

Hello. My name is Alix. My Great Aunty Elsie gave me this beautiful violin. So far no one has been able to give me any information or genuine advice about it. 

It is in tune. I have always had a very deep love of violin music, but I only play occasionally now.

Please, if anyone can help me your assistance would be greatly appreciated.

The label reads: Superfine model of Antonius Stradivarius, Cremonensis, Faciebat anno, 1710. Handmade by Anton Wolff, model no. 14. Registered no. 1800.

The two photos in the case are in light that shows the colours. I used sunlight for the rest to try and show as much detail as possible.

Thank You for your time.

@Alix You need to loosen the hairs of the bow by twisting the metal adjustor at the end. Keeping the bow tight all the time will ruin the camber and/or bow straightness. The bow should be tightened before and then loosened after each time you play with it.

And never tightened to the extent that that one is. Always a "belly" toward the hair even when tightened for playing.
