Past Instruments Commissioned Through MyLuthier:

Violin by Sing Him Wong, MyLuthier London 2024

Guarneri del Gesu 'Lord Wilton'
Violin by Sing Him Wong, MyLuthier London 2024
£ 15,000 GBP

We are very excited to present our first in-house violin. Made by our resident maker, Sing Him Wong for MyLuthier, it is a stunning Guarneri 'Lord Wilton' model. Featuring his impressive craftsmanship and attention to detail, everything about this violin is refined and full of character. It has a very impressive sound and it what you would expect from a top Guarneri model violin. The low-end is full and rich with a very deep resonance. The higher registers are powerful and projecting but its wide range of colours allows the player to express lyricism and sweetness with ease. As you dig into the string, the violin's sound only expands, allowing you to get the most out of it and this remains the case even in the higher positions on all strings. This instrument was commissioned from us so is already sold but should you be interested in it or something similar, please get in touch. It is a very rare gem at this price point. We look forward to hearing from you!

Sing Him Wong, born in 1993 in Belgium, is a skilled violin maker at MyLuthier in London. He started as a violin and cello player but his pursuit of the perfect sound led him to violin-making. A graduate with merit from ILSA Antwerpen, where he studied under Anton Sommer and Erick Buys, Sing Him combines his musicianship with expert craftsmanship to create instruments that truly resonate. At MyLuthier, he continues his dedication to excellence in both sound design & restoration.

Violin by Gonzalo Bayolo, 2024 Guarneri 'King Joseph'

Guarneri "King Joseph"
Violin by Gonzalo Bayolo, 2024 Guarneri 'King Joseph'
£ 20,000 GBP

Gonzalo Bayolo is one of our favourite makers. He is distinguishing himself as one of the finest makers of his generation. This latest example is yet another stunning Guarneri model, this one after the 1737 King Joseph. The body is slightly on the smaller side but it feels extremely comfortable to play. The sound is fiery and strong. The E string has outstanding brilliance and projection without sacrificing any sweetness or lyricism. The G string is rich and full and the two middle strings are very resonant and balanced allowing players to benefit from the full range of the instrument. There are no weak points; this instrument would be suited to any type of player but would shine in the hands of a soloist, orchestral leader or chamber musician.

Based in Santiago de Compostela, Gonzalo Bayolo brings together respect for tradition and an innovative spirit into the instrument making process. Led by a deep knowledge of the science and history of his trade, he imbues his creations with dynamism and an original interpretation, granting them a unique character. He also works widely as a restorer, holding a "Hans Weishaar" certificate.

Violin by Anna Arietti, "Heifetz" Guarneri, 2024

Guarneri "Heifetz"
Violin by Anna Arietti, "Heifetz" Guarneri, 2024
£ 15,000 GBP

Cremona-based luthier Anna Arietti is quickly gaining popularity amongst collectors and connoisseurs as one of the prominent makers of her generation. We have been working with her for many years now, and this Heifetz Guarneri model is one of her most popular models. The tone is rich and powerful, whilst striking a good balance between dark and bright. It is characterised by a full and vibrant resonance on every note and every double stop. This particular instrument was commissioned though us by a lucky player in the far east.
