Evan Smith "Kortschak" 1 Buy Evan Smith "Kortschak" 1 New Evan Smith "Kortschak" Violin 'In Stock'

     Original Giuseppe Guarneri del Gesu violins are one of Evan Smith's favorites historically. He's examined originals, and faithfully builds with similar tool marks left under finish, as original del Gesu violins did. These violins are known for sounding quite lovely to the player, even as the sound waves travel true for some distance. We even remark that the sound will go around buildings. It is often that we are showing an Evan Smith violin at our booth at a festival and as it is being played, another violin maker is drawn to the source of the tone they heard clearly from quite a distance from us. Many times, down the hall in a different room. Another feature has always been how dynamic these violins are as you change bowing proximity to the bridge. Very true, consistent tones with nothing shrill. The best players coming into our store, or on-site at music festivals always comment on the great sound of the Evan Smith violins that we have, no matter what period they are from.

     Built similar to an original Gasparo Bertolotti daSalo violin of 1560, tall-arching in the top that is in the Chaimei museum in China. This violin won 2nd place in tone, at the VMMAI competition.
     All seasoned woods, varnished hand-crafted by Evan Smith.
     Very good sound. This violin was just played, and enjoyed by Paul Anastasio at the Weiser, Idaho National Old-Time Fiddle Contest. He remarked that it was under priced for the tone that it produces, and also stated in general that Evan Smith violins were extremely good sounding, with very consistent tone. Many people over the years have notice that Evan Smith violins outperform many maker's instruments that cost more money. They project extremely well, with no harshness of sound under your chin. These are performance instruments that are ready to be utilized by very highly-skilled professionals in live performance and recording.
