Absolute top-notch hand-built, hand-finished violin from one of the country's most respected makers. R.J. Storm has built violins for well-known performers throughout the years including Jason Carter of the Del McCoury band who endorsed him on their recordings. You can see Mr Storm's articles on the subject of violin making and restoration in each issue of the national publication known as Fiddler Magazine. This top grade instrument is his own design and follows the artistic direction of his hand in creating great definition by the purfling, defined edge work that flairs at the corners and graceful f-holes with scalloped wings - made from the finest aged woods of Spruce and Flamed Maple and clear dark Ebony for the fingerboard. Despite his unique style, R.J. Storm stays true to the classic Italian school of violin construction from the the block work, rib work and linings to the triangulation of the ribs into the blocks for superior strength and tone. If you're looking to step to the highest level instrument that not only looks good and feels special in the hand but creates carrying tones worthy of even the most talented soloist, look no further.
