Total rebuild of 120+ year old Bass that was swapped for 8 student violins for Handevat outreach program at the  Cape East Coast. It was completely black and seemingly beyond repair!

I’ve been playing on my Svencino 3 since 2014. I’ve been very happy with it so far, it projects well in a concert hall and is good for concertos and solo playing. My teachers in the USA are also very pleased with the instrument. I’ve had it looked at in New York City by some of the best luthiers around, including Julie Reed-Yeboah who was very impressed with the sound and build of the instrument. She also commented positively on my harmonic tailpiece. The value of my violin has increased substantially since I bought it!

I am so delighted and happy with the restored violin.👏 At first my playing was really not doing the violin justice, but I have started practising (much😁) more diligently again. Now the sound is smooth and controlled evenly and my heart just really jumps with joy - the sound is so beauuuutiful!

Thank you so much for all the effort put into this project!!!! It was absolutely worth it!!!!!⭐️
