1729 Stradivari Violin geige 4/4 #830 “THE BALOKOVIC”

Delivered to a friend in Arkansas, USA.

His comments:

I got the “Balokovic” in a couple of days ago, and I am impressed! The violin looks amazing. There are spots where you can see how the finish is applied, but that is part of owning a hand made rather than machine applied finish violin.

The bridge, which looked a little large and in need of further shaping is actually fitted well, and I was amazed it arrived in great shape despite being shipped with the bridge up. I am assuming the strings are cheap steel strings, and I have perlon cores on the way to replace them.

However, the tone is fantastic for a new violin! I am greatly impressed with the quality for the price, and have left feedback about it already. I am also impressed with the fact it arrived less than 4 days after you shipped it. Keep up the great work!

Hi Jephin,
I just wanted to ask if how much is this Violin, It looks Great
and if I buy one of these can I request to make the Varnish more darker
and looks more Dirty? hehe!
Just Inquiring.. it looks Very Interesting though.
Thanks! in Advance.
