This is a reproduction of the Guarneri del Gesu's Cannone violin in 1743 by my maker Dan Sun, a small workshop in Beijing. This violin is also called the Cannon violin by some. The most outstanding feature of this violin is the antiquating techniques and the impressive cracked marks.
It is oil varnished, and the varnish is made by one of our client-luthier-supplier in Italy. Even we do not know the exact formula. But we are blessed because of its easy availability to us. The tone is nicely balanced on all 4 strings and responsive. With its good projection, this violin is suitable for solo performances.
We used aged Austrian Spruce and Bosnian Maple for this top level violin. This master level violin achieves many highs in terms of tone. A wonderfully warm, mellow tone, and with the sophistication in tone you would find in an old violin. And the trademark balanced tone evident in all Opera violins. This particular violin is a very fine top quality violin. You can tell that the craftmanship is excellent in all ways. I particularly like the peg workmanship.
This violin is a no nonsense oil-varnished violin suitable for most professionals. Antiquated slightly for that fine touch, it is a violin with a lot of charisma. The market value for this violin easily exceeds USD3000.
Aged all European wood, Italian made varnish, German violin making high standards, exquisite Chinese craftmanship. This violin represents the combination of the best.

If you like instruments from small workshops...
"I am a violin trader and I come from Singapore. I work with small chinese violin/bow workshops. Currently, I represent an Alliance of Small Violin & Bow Makers. If you like instruments from small workshops, then maybe the violins/bows I supply will suit you. These violins/bows are made by one maker from beginning till the end.
I take great pride in my work and I expect nothing short of good quality from the violins I choose.
For resellers and violin teachers, I welcome you to discuss wholesale after you sample my violins/bows from ebay. I have various luthiers with unique styles in their violin and bow making techniques. At ebay, I show mainly one luthier's work. I cannot offer very high volume as these are made in small workshops and not large factories. But I can offer a good selection of different luthier's work.
