Models designed for the serious student through college level, to semi-professional are at Jim Clinton Violins as of the first week of April. Our workshop technicians will be hovering over these European jewels, putting them through their paces, tweaking, and testing them for our one day sale on Monday, the 14th of April.

 

#1 European instruments represent the birthplace of, and the centuries old tradition of, violin making. And, Jim Clinton Violins is having an explosion of European instruments on Monday, April 14, 2014, one day before Tax Day. They will have instruments by Master violinmaker Jarek Koscielny and by the 15 workmen of the Calin Wultur workshop, not to mention our current inventory of European instruments. You will see, hear, touch, and play, marvelous examples of European craftsmanship. Violins, violas, celli, and basses will be here. You will discover that these instruments compare in quality and sound to much more expensive instruments due to reasonably priced Eastern European labor, US currency exchange rates, and a tradition of highly trained workmen, dating back to the days of Stradivari.

 

#2 The European workshop concept involves deliberate, methodic, generational training, while passing violinmaking craft from one master maker to the next. In Poland, this method dates back to the 1600s. Master Jarek Koscielny completed his training, passing on his craft to Calin Wultur and his workshop in Reghin Romania. While Master luthier Calin Wultur oversees his workshop, he increasingly involves himself with the instrument making process based on the model. For example, the best of his 15 workmen carefully work under his supervision while crafting model #7 instruments. He ensures that its model outline, plate tuning, bass bar, and varnish appearance meet his personal standards. Jim Clinton Violins will have sample instruments by Master Koscielny as well as by his one-time students at the Calin Wultur workshop. European violins, violas, celli, and basses will be represented at this sale.

 

Did you Know~

Poland is the only country in the world (not even Italy, the home of Stradivari) that offers a secondary school education for violinmaking, and offers a college level education for violinmaker graduates of these high school programs.

 

from a blog on the Corner Violin Shop site: Corner Violin Shop discusses Polish violin makers  

“Many of today’s Polish makers go through secondary school whose curricula include the art of violin making. There are currently two in the Poland that offer such programs: High School of Fine Arts in Zakopane and High School of Music in Pozna?. These schools’ graduates have an opportunity to continue their studies at the Violin Making Department of Pozna?’s Music Academy. This means that Poland is the only country in the world where violin makers can receive a university-level education.”

#3 Master violin maker Jarek Koscielny resides and makes violins in Czestochowa, Poland. He specializes in making violins and violas based on the patterns of Guarneri and Stradivari. His materials selection is from the best available tonewoods in Poland, utilizing nearby trees from the Carpathian Mountains. He has been making violins and violas for US importer, JR Music Supply for over 10 years. Jim Clinton Violins will have examples of his violins in the days before our sale, Monday, April 14, 2014.
