A truly one of a kind instrument by Antoni Ruschil. The back, ribs and neck of “Il Diavolo” are constructed from an extremely rare piece of exhibition quality pyinma burl. There are no other known pieces of the wood found in the world of this size, large enough to construct a violin with. It is also the world’s first violin made with the material. Originating in Southeast Asia, pyinma produces some of the deepest 3D figure of any wood in the world and also has the highest number of bird’s eyes per square inch of any known species. Burls are rare within the species and extremely difficult to obtain. This wood species is not listed in the CITES Appendices or on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species The ribs of the violin have been lined with fine Japanese paper for strength.
