Violins for sale 

Brand-new handmade 4/4 violin from Cremona, Italy

I carefully selected this brand-new violin after observing, playing and measuring about 50 different violins during my last trip to Cremona Italy. 

I loved that one for it's sound, it's model, it's esthetic, the craftsmanship and it's measurements. It is carefully elaborated following the traditional Cremonese school. The maker comes from a well known family of cremonese violin makers. 

After resting the violin for a few days in Auckland, I did some modifications and adjustments to the setup to fit the New Zealand climate. (The pictures below were taken before the adjustments) 

The violin speaks easily and it is comfortable to play, with a good volume and projection. The sound is even and well balanced across the whole range of the violin. It allows you to express all the nuances you need. 

Suitable for a high grade university student or a profesional. 

I invite you to book an appointment to try it. 

Nicolas Didier l' Ainé
4/4 Violin 

During one of my trips to Europe, and after looking at many old French violins, I selected this 200 year old French violin made by Nicolas Didier l'ainé in the early 1800s in Mirecourt, France, to bring it to New Zealand. I restored it at Le Violon Rouge NZ during the year 2022 -2023. It is now in excellent condition and ready to find its new home. 

It is a powerhouse, chocolate sound, deep in the lower register, warm, colorful, and also clear and bright in the higher register, smooth and articulated, dynamic, easy response, and extremely resonant. One word that came to my mind to describe it is "FRANK" : open, honest, direct, bold, unconstrained. This is an exceptional violin!
