How did the idea come to build a new model violin in the new generation design we call Ricci?
The idea was born while watching a video of violinist Ruggiero Ricci performing the 24 Paganini Caprices, often playing high on the fingerboard. This violin is crafted with a design more accommodating to the player’s left hand, and offers more bowing room due to a longer C cutout, decreasing player damage to the corners of the instrument. The fact that the lost space has not been compensated for physically, is compensated by the ability to create the bel canto acoustics of the old masters in the instruments.
We would appreciate any opinions or comments you may have about our instruments. Email us:email@example.com
To those who play both violin and viola, we introduce our new design, a five stringed instrument that we call the “Violin-Viola d’Amore.”
The size of the neck and the strings are the same as a full sized violin. The length of the body is the same as a 15” (380mm) viola.
This instrument is very comfortable to play and the sound ……well, listen below and decide for yourself.
Let us know your opinion. We appreciate all comments.
Another of our new designs. A new classical design with our same Bel Canto sound. We are now taking orders to include the picture of your choice as a very fine, thin, beautiful carving on the surface of the back. Ask us if you have questions.
