English Made Violin: The Wessex Model ‘XV’

Made in England by The Wessex Violin Company. Each instrument is individually labelled and is accompanied by a hand written Certificate of Authenticity, bearing photographs of the instrument.

Building upon a tradition of English workshop craftsmanship lost since the middle of the last century. The United Kingdom can boast some of the finest individual makers in the world today and celebrates a history of excellence as epitomised by the tradition of the Newark School.
Model XV Violin: Our first pattern in the Wessex Series.

These instruments are made from selected materials and have a robust sound. Featuring quality ebony, rosewood or boxwood fittings in French or English pattern. Despiau ‘two tree’ bridge fitted as standard.
The Body: Back in two pieces of figured Balkan maple with ribs and scroll in a similar wood. The table in two pieces of Bavarian spruce of narrow/medium-narrow grain. Varnish typically of a rich chestnut brown on a gold ground.

Typical measurements: LOB 356mm, UB 167mm, MB 117mm & LB 207mm
