Knilling Ships New Nicolo Gabrielli Violins

Posted on August 8, 2018

ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI- Knilling is thrilled to be shipping its two new Nicolo Gabrielli master violins for 2018, the Maestro 86F and the Guadagnini 87FD. Both models are perfectly suited for advancing players looking for an instrument that will allow them to progress to the next level.  The models were introduced at the 2018 winter NAMM show in Anaheim Californa earlier this year.

“We believe our customers will be thrilled with these instruments,” saysLang Shen, Product Manager of Knilling. “The greatest challenge the head of the shop expressed to me was persuading his luthiers to relinquish an instrument they were working on, so passionately dedicated were they to maximizing each individual instruments’ potential! 

Made in USA, all Nicolo Gabrieli instruments are handcrafted exclusively from premium European tonewoods, and individually refined for maximum performance. The American Shop controls all aspects of manufacture, from selection and harvest of the premium tonewoods in Europe for future production, to evaluating and completing the external and internal elements, to testing, final graduation and play-testing for maximum individual performance and hand application of their own special color and hybrid varnish preparations.
