Bellissima Luthier Estate Collection:
Bellisima Strings: Our exclusive house violin label for dedicated students and amateurs. Each violin is setup in Canada then played and uniquely named by Rhiannon personally.
Fiddleheads obtained a rare private collection of violins from a luthier's estate.
We estimate the violins were made circa 2010 and have since been seasoning nicely, waiting to be played and enjoyed.
Each instrument is a one-of-a-kind. We personally selected two dozen outstanding violins and are adopted them into the Bellissima series, assigning each instrument her own name and label.
Choose between a variety of flamed woods, 1- or 2- piece backs and a range of styles and colours of antiqued varnish. A few violins are nicely discounted for absolutely minor cosmetic flaws; ideal for players on a budget who want the best tone for the price. The tone of the instruments is lovely, having seasoned over time, and will improve even more once they are played regularly.
Each instrument is setup at our studio in Canada to maximize the fit and adjustment of the bridge, soundpost and other specifications. Each violin is completed with quality ebony (sometimes nut wood) fittings and industry standard Austrian Dominant strings.
We shall release a few models at a time as time allows and until the collection is depleted.
