The Jazz violin

The jazz violin has seen the light of day after a creative break of 3 years spent in Pris workshops doing restauration work on ancient instruments and making instrument on models hundreds of years old.

A whole lot of ideas, some of which go back to my time at the violin making school (the thinner and braced belly) all came to light in the same instrument, the first jazz violin: the tremolo chinrest, frets (first in ebony !), tuning gears, a thinner and braced belly, corners with improved resistance to wear, assymmetric resonace-body. The Neolin was already there in a certain way, but it needed several years of improvements until the first series could be produced.
