I'm considering buying the GCV Bourree 750ES or the GCV Cremona Cannon violin.  Does anyone have any advice, from experience, on which one is actually better/nicer than the other?

The Cannon, known as "Il Cannone", received its name from Niccolò Paganini and is known for its power and resonance. Are you looking for a bright and powerful violin or a dark and warm instrument?

Don't forget the Holstein Ole Bull ... I think it strikes a nice balance between darkness and power ..

We commissioned another great violin that should be arriving soon. Every time we do something like this it takes at least 3 months to have the instruments made though.

Red Mendelssohn’ Stradivari 🙂

Coming soon!!!

I have the Bourree 750 es and I love it. Mine is on the dark side, but thats the way I wanted/asked for it:D I don't think you can go wrong with any of them though. good luck!

The better/nicer one is the one that sounds better/nicer to you.
