New instrument

Freely after Guarneri del Gesu

Guarneri del Gesu violins are played by the best soloists in the world and tolerate a strong bow stroke, as well as virtuoso playing.

This instrument corresponds to my personal ideal of the violin, which I would have liked to play on competitions and big stages as a violin student.

From this vision, I fused the merits of Guarneri with my own signature.

Sound body

30 years seasoned hazel spruce for the top and a unique deep flamed Bosnian maple back served as the basis for this instrument. The many details of the specially cooked oil varnish, create an authentic antique look and always show new nuances, to fall in love.

A little secret adorns the inside of a frame:

“The two most important days of your life are the day you were born and the day you find out why. ” Marc Twain.

Not every love lasts forever, so we are happy to offer to take instruments purchased from us in trade and exchange them for a higher quality one. If the instrument is in original condition, 100% of the purchase price of the old instrument, will be applied to the new one. For this you need the original invoice.

Commission instruments and accessories, as well as instruments from other categories (violin against cello) are excluded.

It is normal to see signs of use on beloved and played stringed instruments, on the bridge, fingerboard, strings and varnish. In case of significant damage (cracks, broken corners or edges, deformation, severe varnish damage) and very unkempt instruments, as well as modifications made by other luthiers (bridge, accessories, etc.), we may have to deduct a part of the instrument price or cannot take it back.

We will inform you about the progress of the repair and will perform it on time and reliably. During this time, we will gladly provide you with a replacement instrument free of charge.

Sale on consignment is generally possible, but we reserve the right to include only selected string instruments in our online catalog. Criteria for inclusion are, for example, sales opportunities, condition and price.

If you want to put an instrument on consignment, send us photos and scans of existing certificates, as well as information(e.g. damage). If the instrument is suitable for sale through Hellmichviolins, the instrument is personally inspected and sound adjustments or repairs are made that meet the workshop’s quality standards and facilitate a flawless sale.
