Violin Maker in Glasgow, Scotland

This is a violin I made in the summer of 2015.  It's based on the "Grand Pattern" of Nicol√≤ 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.
