The Wessex ’V’ is a handmade modern interpretation of the English school of violin making. The instruments are made to the highest standards using Balkan maple and Bavarian spruce and are finished with a traditional chestnut-brown oil based varnish that recreates the look of English makers Kennedy and Hill.

The Body: The back made in two pieces of irregular figured or lightly figured Balkan maple, the ribs and scroll are in similar wood; the table in two pieces of Bavarian spruce of
narrow or medium-narrow grain.
