A Violin by Iotti & Vibe
Violin by Agnete Vibe, Parma, 2020
This violin, inspired by the modern maker Sgarabotto, was crafted by the hands of a rising-star maker. It is a great example of Agnete’s style, influenced by the old masters. In our opinion, the high point of this violin is the superb sculpted scrollMore
The wood used for the back is of regular flamed maple. The top is spruce with a fine grain from the Paneveggio forest. The instrument is varnished with an even red and brown tone oil varnish, cooked following historical recipes.
"This violin is based on a Sgarabotto model and I was lucky to get the original measurements while Andrea Zanrè was writing the book of Sgarabotto.
We quickly learned that we had a really good base on our hands! Ever since we made it several times and tweaked the model quite a bit.
I named the violin ‘Rusalka’ - after the opera of my favorite composer Antonin Dvorak." Agnete Vibe
