David Yale Signature Guarneri 1743 "Il Cannone" Model Violin

The Guarneri 1743 "il Cannone" — The original instrument, built by Bartolomeo Giuseppe Guarneri 'del Gesù' in Cremona Italy in 1743, was famously owned by Nicolo Paganini. This violin is modeled after the original and finished with a beautifully antiqued oil varnish. The sound of these violins are very even and sweet while bringing a powerful and resonant tone.

This violin is accessorized with a bow and case to match the professional quality of the instrument itself. The Guarneri model violins are paired with the L'Archet Brazil Nickel violin bow. Get the whole outfit at a discount when purchasing the instrument and bow together!

This violin is part of the David Yale Signature Series of fine violins. These represent the work of a luthier taking all the extra time they need to get the plate graduations, bass bar placement, and final varnishing just right. The photos show typical instrument quality. Woodgrain will be different on each violin. For more details on the specific instruments currently in stock you may contact the showroom at 1-800-779-0242
