The prestigious luxury brand Wedenstein finally announced its last project which has been kept as a secret for few months – violin built specially for the exceptional american artist Lindsey Stirling. For this project Austria’s company got together with the classical music experts of “mezzo-forte germany”, which can look back on several decades of building violins.
The result is the 4-stringed violin with a a pure language of shape, combined with attention to the very last detail – so typical for Wedenstein. The minimalist 6-layer carbon fibre corpus got refined with finest gold leaf inlays and a complex nano-sealing. Every add-on part is a handcrafted unique. Even the pins are harmonised perfectly with gold leaf enrichments and equipped with a hidden epicyclic gear. High-tech in a elegant casing.
The self-proclaimed ‘hip-hop violinist’ will play Wedenstein’s “black goddess” at the presentation of her brandnew album for the first time officially.
The violin will be limited to 7 pieces worldwide an built individually for every customer with a waiting period of 8 weeks.
In just one year, Lindsey Stirling, has gone from a virtually unknown America’s Got Talent contestant to a self made YouTube star, accumulating over 110million views on her dozen original songs.
