Commissioned Violins

Dylan Race makes a limited quantity of fine violins every year. These instruments are based on a lovely Fiorini violin that used to be around the shop. These violins are made with the highest quality Austrian maple for the backs, ribs and scroll and Engelmann spruce from Colorado for the tops. The tonal characteristics of these violins tends toward dark and sweet, but with a sticky immediacy and no lack of power. I most often make full size instruments for professionals, but also very much enjoy making fractional sizes for exceptional young players. please call for more details!
