In December 2010, I borrowed Colin Adamson’s newly finished violin (1715 ex Joachim Strad model) while my instrument was being repaired. I couldn’t give it back, I just had to buy it.
The violin is not only beautiful to look at but more importantly, it has a wonderful sound. It is extremely responsive, with a rich tone which has lots of different colours in its sound palette.
With an even sound across all the strings, this violin can project right to the back of concert halls with amazing clarity. The violin has the perfect combination of power and versatility.
