January 2014 New model

Emmett Violins is pleased to announce a new violin form is available, based on the Guarneri ‘del Gesu’ instrument ‘Il Cannone’ of 1743 and famously the favoured violin of Paganini. This violin (now housed in the Paganini museum in Genoa) is renowned for its power and dark tonal qualities, and has the distinctive gothic f-holes and unusual scroll carving common to del Gesu’s late instruments. The Emmett Violins version has retained the dimensions, character and strong lines of the original whilst ironing out some of the eccentricities of workmanship seen in late del Gesu.
