Matthew M. Hannafin

Violin Maker in Glasgow, Scotland

This is a violin I made in the summer of 2015.  It's based on the "Grand Pattern" of Nicolò Amati.  The woods used are well seasoned European spruce and flamed maple.  The tone is vibrant and rich, the e string is very present, and plays the upper registers very clearly.  The varnish is brown, and the scroll is of my own design.
