The Luis and Clark violin is not only a terrific solo violin, but it spent the entire month of June performing chamber music with Stradivaris, Guarneris, Amatis and many other superb traditional instruments. It takes its place completely
naturally in the company of great string instruments.” –Paul Rosenthal, Artistic Director, Sitka Summer
The world’s finest carbon fiber Violin
The Luis and Clark violin has a rich, resonant tone and wonderful projection. Our owners have described it using these phrases, “beautiful, easy to play and the sound is gorgeous… Has wonderful projection… Its tone is rich, resonant and the instrument itself speaks easily and is very responsive to my playing… an absolutely wonderful instrument. It is a pleasure to play and a joy to listen to… Its warmth and extra dynamic range makes it perfect for an amplified performance.”
Weighing less than a pound, the violin brings together the best of the violins Luis most admired in his 60 years as a professional musician. He was most influenced by Joseph Guarnerius del Gesù, but the Luis and Clark violin also has characteristics from Amati, Montagnana, Stradivarius, J.B. Guadagnini and the rest of the Guarneri family.
