    The Soil is strikingly handsome and this 1714 Stradivari has had more experience on the concert platform that almost any other violin. Played by Itzhak Perlman, the Soil is widely considered to be the best sounding Stradivari ever created. Other owners of this iconic instrument are French luthier and collector Jean-Baptiste Vuillaume and Yehudi Menuhin. The beauty of the violin is found in its extravagant maple wood figure which is illuminated and partly covered by Stradivari's greatest varn...

    About the Scott Cao 1743 Cannon   The 1743 Guarneri violin is known as "Il Cannone" or "the Cannon" due to the power and full quality of its tone.

    About the Scott Cao 1733 Kreisler   We feel very strongly that no specimen can exemplify del Gesu in his mature youth more strikingly than the 1733 Kreisler. It stands at the threshold of the master's redemption from the past, with the f-holes still revealing his indebtedness to Stradivari while the model and form of the instrument are all his own.  Reproductions of the 1733 Kreisler are available in the STV 750, 850, 950 and 1500 models by Scott Cao. All models of Scott Cao Violins are prof...

This instrument was reported to be the first Guarnerius del Gesu to come to America. This amazing violin is considered one of the nine finest Guarneris in existence. The 1737 King Joseph is unusual as it has a one-piece back made of slab cut wood. It is similar ...

    About the 1742 Lord Wilton Considered a masterpiece, the 1742 Lord Wilton was constructed during del Gesu's later years. This instrument was in the possession of the great violinist Yehudi Menuhin and would become his favorite violin to play in public. A letter from Menuhin in 1974 tells how he preferred the tone of his Guarneri over that of his Stradivari violin. Guarneri used deeply rippled, beautifully figured maple for the back, neck, and scroll. While the maple is typically used by Guarn...
