This magnificent instrument is made after the famous "Canon" violin by Giuseppe Guarnerius del Gesu from 1742.
The genuine Guarneri violin was the favorite instrument of Niccolo Paganini, one of the greatest violin virtuosi of all times. Paganini named the violin "Il Cannone" (the Canon) for its prodigious sound. He bequeathed the violin to his native city of Genoa (Italy), where it still resides.
Stankov uses traditional Italian methods of construction, and select well-seasoned European spruce and Balkans maple tone wood.
The violin is finished with premium-quality pine-resin oil varnish skillfully brushed over a special coat of mineral ground following the method of England's David Rubio. Rubio developed this advanced varnishing technique after many years of studying the genuine violins of Giuseppe Guarneri and Antonio Stradivari.
The finish of this violin features a gorgeous warm golden-reddish color of a stunning transparency and incredible optical depth. The instrument has a gorgeous one-piece back carved from a slab-cut European maple with a truly unique flame pattern.
Stankov only makes two "crazy back" violins per year and they sell within days of becoming available. (They are also available by special order: contact us)
The warm, deep, clear, yet powerful tone is rich in nuances and beautiful ringing overtones making this violin a true solo instrument to be greatly appreciated by professional musicians.
