This 5 string violin was commissioned in 2010. The top is of European Spruce and the back and sides are of matching North American Poplar for a darker tone. The grafted scroll is carved from Persian Pear and the neck is curly maple. The body length is a large full size at 361 mm, the f-stop is 195 mm and the neck length is 130 mm. Its sound is surprisingly large, full and very well focused.
