Item #: 560-484
Maker: Vanna So
Description: Vanna So was born in Cambodia to a family of wood workers. After coming to the United States, he found employment in the William Harris Lee shop as an assistant to William Whedbee. Developing an increasing desire to make his own instruments, he began an apprenticeship with Tetsuo Matsuda, which culminated in the making of his first violin in 1988. Specializing in both violins and violas, Vanna has to date crafted over 450 instruments that feature a powerful and broad, yet sophisticated tonal quality, and are finished with an golden-amber varnish of his own making.
This particular violin is a fine example of Vanna’s work. It produces a very responsive, powerful, dark tone. Back Length: 35.1 cm.
