This violin was the perfect gift that I have ever given myself. It’s my third purchase from Antonio Strad, and another excellent experience. The Giovanni looks classic and appeals to the eyes.
For its sound, it is full of depth, distinct, and unique. This well-built violin is world-class and suits serious students who want to advance their playing techniques fast. I’d also like to mention its hand-built and beautiful design and robust sound. I have tried playing it solo and as a part of an ensemble.

• Easy to play
• Hand finished
• Responsive and friendly support
• Nothing I can think of
Thanks Antonio Strad!
I nearly drove them crazy with questions but they have a responsive and supportive team that’s always ready to assist. I have called them several times to ask about this violin because I wanted to make sure that I was making a good decision.
As you may know, buying a new violin is quite an investment. I have read reviews about this instrument, but I wanted to check how it would play. The people at Antonio scheduled a video demo to show me how the Giovanni would play. I was impressed by its tone and sound – clear, warm, and full.
Bought the Giovanni Violin and it arrived in a perfect condition. It is better-looking and -sounding than my previous instruments. It exceeded my expectations. Not to mention, I think it is worth the price for being handcrafted and professionally set up.
Main points I liked about it
• Quality and durable accessories
• Amazing aesthetics
• Full and rich tone
• Ebony fittings
• Great strings
• Comes fully assembled
Overall, this violin is one of the most remarkable violins on the market in this price range. You might want to consider it for yourself. It has a lovely sound quality and is built using only quality and durable products.
I wrote this review to share my overall experience so that if you are looking at the “Gio” you might get my point of view.
Materials and artisanship: The Giovanni Violin is excellently constructed and light but sturdy if that make any sense.
Setup: This violin came assembled and setup. The team also gave me a demo to show me how it would sound. They also showed me how it looked from every angle. Overall, this violin has a superb quality. The overall setup positively influenced the way it sounds. It produces very responsive and rich sound. The shoulder and chin rest add to the smooth playing. They do not make it uncomfortable but make playing feel so nature. They also allow me to maintain good posture while playing.
I love the overall sound of this violin and recommend Antonio Strad to anyone looking for a quality instrument that will give them a smooth playing experience.
I love the flamed maple back and its beautiful sound. The oil varnishing completed the package and gave it a classic appeal. I feel like I am already a master simply holding it in my arms. Thanks Antonio Strad!
This is simply a beautiful violin. I’m so impressed with the quality of sound, the tone and the quality of service I received while making this purchase. Antonio Strad makes a violin for every level of experience but with the sound and quality in mind. That quality shows in every piece. They are all set up by luthiers right in store and then did video calls so I could hear the exact sound from the instrument I purchased. My new Giovanni Violin…. a purchase I’ll never have remorse about.
