Product Description

Carondelet Model “Eve” Violin

Carondelet Model “Eve” Violin has a tone as large and unique as the City of New Orleans. The Carondelet Series features limited edition violins, which are Keller Strings’ newest private label violins. They are named for Francisco Luis Hector, baron de Carondelet 1748-1807. He was the governor of Louisiana from 1791 to 1797. Each violin in the Carondelet series is unique. Celebrated for their individuality, each violin was given a name. The violins were all made by the same master maker, but distinctive details set them apart from one another.

We started with a master quality violin with aged European woods. There is a slight variance in color and varnish of each violin. This is to enhance the type of wood chosen for the fittings by Keller Strings. The hand-picked fittings are jujube, boxwood, or ebony. All pegs are hand carved with the Fleur de Lis. The tailpieces showcase either a carved violinist or a Fleur de Lis. A titanium tail loop adds to the volume of these limited edition violins.

Carondelet Model “Eve” Violin has beautiful ebony fittings. The tailpiece is an art deco style, with the carving of a tulip! A boxwood fret adds a nice finishing touch to the tailpiece as well. The ebony pegs are also in an art deco style, with fleur de lys carvings. The pins and collars on the pegs are boxwood. The ebony peg has a Parisian eye.
