    Full description

    The wood chose for the top, a narrow to medium grain spruce, was carefully selected and came from Val di Fiemme, which is the exact source of most of the greatest Cremonese makers of the past. The luminous one-piece back maple with wide, deep flames comes from the Balkans. The sides follow the same figure as the back and the neck with slightly narrow flames. This violin is ready to be played by an excellent musician.
    "Made in 1743, just one year before ''del Gesù's" tragically early death. The Carrodus is considered to be in the list of Guarneri's most spectacular violins, it is a fine companion to Il Cannone; they share distinctive features, mainly its powerful appearance, exalting ''del Gesù's'' most imaginative and creative epoch. The soundholes are unique, asymmetrical, and more elongated, typically of Guarneri's late work. Its arching shows a bit of influence of the Brescia school and it's fuller than others from the same year. The scroll's bold and robust appearance, just like Il Cannone, imprints ''del Gesù's'' expressive work." Luiz Amorim

    This violin instrument, influenced by the traditions of the great makers of Bologna, was crafted by the hands of a very experienced master. It is a great and rare example of Franco Albanelli´s style. In our opinion, the high point of this violin is the beautiful rich orange varnish and its craquelure.
