Advanced instruments inspired by the tradition of Venetian luthiers established in the city in the end of 17th century. With a strong influence from the Cremona methods of construction, the luthiers of Venice, Italy, came from other regions and countries. Renowned luthiers like Pietro Guarneri, Matteo Goffriller, Matthias Kaiser and Domenico Montagnana, have placed the city in the history of lutherie. Our family heritage has close ties to the Metropolitan City of Venice, along with the Piave river.
With strong influence by Stradivari, Vincenzo Cavani made a violin in 1900 which is exposed at the Museo Della Musica, Venezia. The exposition "Antonio Vivaldi e il suo tempo" honors Antonio Vivaldi and his time, but also the lutheria history in Venice and violin makers in general.
This model is our tribute to all of them. A 4/4 violin made under the influence of Cavani's master piece, but Stradivari stile instead of Guarneri's. Good quality tone wood with hand construction Italian methods, spruce top and flamed maple back and sides, ebony accessories, professional bridge with bone incrustation.
In 1709, Antonio Stradivari made a violin known as Viotti because of this old owner Giovanni Battista Viotti (1755 - 1824). This is one of the best violins ever made by Stradivari.

It's a nice 4/4 violin designed for advanced students and professional players alike.

This advanced viola is named in reference to one special viola made by Antonio Stradivari in 1696. This is one of the 10 surviving violas from the master.
