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.
Evah strings, exquisite Rosewood fittings and very fine setup from the maker himself. Crafted in 2018 in Kazanlak, Bulgaria and includes detailed certificate with photos. Read Customer Testimonials
