The praise could not have been any clearer: "This violin is the best instrument of this recording session!“ The soloist who plays our new arrivals and records expressive audio clips for each one of them was delighted by this modern master violin with its easy playability, its powerful voice full of character, and its attractive aesthetic.

Traian Sima has shown to be a promising discovery in the world of violin making today, where there is no lack of talented luthiers. Even when this master violin was first sighted at our workshop, we noticed its strikingly lovely aesthetic and artisanal mastery – an instrument which can certainly hold its own when compared to other master violins made "at the bench." Traian Sima selected magnificent tone woods of the finest quality for this violin, which he patterned after a well-designed model oriented towards Antonio Stradivari. The radiantly beautiful varnish serves as an attractive highlight for both the tight flames of the two-piece maple back as well as the even and eye-catching grain of the spruce top and the purfling, which was applied with painstaking care and a great appreciation of detail. Even though the violin's pleasing appearance stirred up major expectations, our violinist was nevertheless surprised by its comfortable playing properties and excellent sound, which he enjoyed immensely while preparing for and recording the audio sample. Consequently, this Traian Sima violin is a worthy entry in our CV Selectio Masterpiece portfolio, where we present special discoveries in contemporary violin making. The instrument features a balanced sound, warmth and maturity, the occasional sweet note and a responsive power full of character, all of which give advanced musicians a broad range of interpretive opportunities. You will find it to be an instrument that accompanies you over long stretches of your musical path – and our trade-in guarantee applies here as well.
