This is a Nicolaus Amati Copy circa 1920 violin being sold with bow and case. The case appears to be original.
Niccolo Amati was a teacher of Stradavari. Born 1596, Died 1684. His violins are considered technically perfect, and are copied much. He started with a smaller model than Stradavari. Then Niccolo worked on a "Grand Model."
Nicolo (1596-1684), son of Hieronymus, grandson of Andrea, and nephew of Antonio, is considered the greatest instrument maker of the family. His instruments are much admired for their beautiful and penetrating, though not powerful, tone. Violins, violas, cellos, several three- string bass viols, and at least one pochette by his hand are known.
Cremona has always been a pioneer when it comes to making quality violins to meet the demands of the growing student violin population. While focusing primarily on quality and to meet the best value for the player, the Cremona SV-130 Premier Novice Series violin was developed. Whether the student is in the earliest stages of the learning process, or well on the way to more advanced training, these violins featuring USA-made D’Addario Prelude strings, the educator’s preferred string for students, will perform well beyond their price. Each instrument is setup to Cremona standards at their U.S. workshop.
