Looking for Custom Violin Products?

13th December 2018 in Days of the year

As the most popular bowed string instrument across the world, we’re not at all surprised to see that the violin has a whole day dedicated to its existence. Violinists have demonstrated, over the generations, the versatility of the violin by the extensive use in many genres such as baroque music, classical, jazz, folk music, rock and roll and soft rock, and that’s why there’s a Violin Day to celebrate it! In honour of Violin Day, we take a closer look at our custom violin products.

History of Violin Day

The modern violin has been around for roughly 500 years. It was said to have been designed in the 1500’s by Andrea Amati, and by the 1660s it was the most popular virtuoso instrument in Europe. Today, the violin not only remains an indispensable feature of western classical music. There are a lot of violinists and fiddle players throughout the world today, so it we can see why Violin Day caught on. In fact, the violin is present in the most prestigious musical groups in the world, including the Venetian Philharmonic Orchestra! Imagine an instrument with such humble beginnings becoming such an important mainstay of modern classical music.
