A Revolutionary 6-Strings Violin Viola (and a possible 5-Strings too)

June 22, 2009

This is a design of the next generation of violins with more than 4 strings. I am very happy and encouraged by many of my customers who have contributed to make this design possible. I have combined all the ideas and tested them on a few models at the workshop with my Vecchio maker. This is a 6 strings violin. But the unique design of this violin is that it has  the body of a small viola with the length scaled down to 354mm. That is small enough for a warm hi E string that will remain pleasant to our ears. We increased the archings, and combined with the wider viola ribs and adjustments in the bass bar, a clear low F string is also made possible. We’ve increased the fingerboard slightly to accomodate the 6 strings. And we are very happy with the outcome of the tone achieved by this violin. We’ve already built this for 2 of our orchestral customers,  who have been very happy with them so far. And we are happy to bring this unique violin to players looking for good flexibility. We see this as a major breakthrough in our design in modern violins. Oil varnished. Matching maple, sides, neck and scroll make this a beautiful masterpiece. Back:354   upper:168   middle:110   lower:211   ribs: 36   nut width:28  (mm)

Normally a 6 string violin can be found within the world of electric violins. A 6 string acoustic violin is really rather revolutionary I would say and a very exciting idea. There is no 6 string violin listed on Ebay at the moment, do you have a 6 string violin on the way in your workshop?
