CS Jude 950 Violin Features
The Classical Strings 950 Violin is completely handmade by John Wu’s workshop, under his direct guidance. These instruments are recreations of classical masterpiece violins of the past. Everything about the 950 Violin is of the highest caliber. From the attention to detail at the F holes, which are nice and round allowing for exceptional tonal projection, to the scrolls that are cut to be perfectly rounded and thin.
25+ Year Old Tonewoods
The CS 950 Violin uses the most select Italian tonewoods that are aged for at least 25 years! Wood of this caliber and age is expensive but also yields a more stable instrument and maximizes the vibration potential of the instrument that it is used in.
Your bow is every bit as important to your performance as your violin! We have come to love the CodaBow violin bows. They are made in the USA and are
engineered to provide superior performance and durability than equivalently priced wood bows. Being based in the desert of Las Vegas, the durability is what first peaked our interest many years ago on their product… but the performance and sound it what won us over!
In our search to always offer our customers more, we provide this Classical Strings 950 violin as a bundled package that includes a new CodaBow Prodigy bow! These bows have a $345 retail value and offer performance even higher than their price!
Bundle Upgrades Available
If you wanted a bow higher grade in the CodaBow family, we also offer the Diamond NX as a bundle option that you simply pay the difference! This performance value of the Classical Strings 950 violin and the CodaBow Prodigy or Diamond NX will absolutely thrill anyone who tries it, and blow away anyone who hears it!
Oblong Suspension Case Included
We include a traditional oblong suspension case with the violin to maximize your fine instrument’s protection!
In Home Trial
Kessler & Sons Music offers a 3 day trial / return policy on the Classical Strings 950 Violin. There are no cleaning fees or restocking fees (assuming that the item is returned in proper condition). We know that you need to be able to test the instrument to make sure that it is the right instrument for you. We carefully package the instrument so that it arrives safely to you.
Please note that when we ship the instrument, we wrap the bridge and the tailpiece in tissue paper so that IF the bridge were to fall down in shipping, no damage occurs to the instrument. We do not ship the violin with strings under full tension but there is enough tension to keep everything in place while in transit. If you do decide to return the violin, please make sure to follow the same guidelines so that the instrument is returned in the same condition it was sent out.
Please read our terms & conditions (link at the bottom of the page) for full details on this policy.
Why Buy from Kessler & Sons?
Every instrument we sell has been chosen for the performance value that it offers. We firmly believe that it is our responsibility to help the customer pick the right instrument for them. We evaluate every instrument up against the competition on the market and only choose to sell the instruments that offer you the best value.
Every one of our performance level violins is bought and allowed to “age” in our desert climate. We do this to help woods dry out a little longer so as to improve their performance and stability even longer. This particular Classical Strings 950 CS Jude Gagliano violin was made in 2015 and put in to our inventory in late 2018. They have been aged further in our shop since then as they were not put up for immediate sale. This instrument was never sold, not because it wasn’t as good, but because we have allowed it to age. The fact is, this Gagliano, and it’s sister violin (another CS Jude 950 Scarampella) are the 2 finest instruments available in our shop right now!
