Scott Cao 1679 Hellier STV 950
Philips Hill has referred to as the Hellier”one of the most finest Stradivaris in existence”. It is right now held at the Smithsonian Museum. The dimensions of the Hellier differ from another violin dated before 1684-85 and indicate that Stradivari used to be already contemplating changing proportions before he did in 1685. The easiest symmetry of the head and the position and admirable design and cutting of the”f”holes are also upfront of any of his contemporaneous work. On the other hand, the model, heavy edge, and small purfling are characteristics of his early work and the whole instrument presents a heaviness and solidity of construction. Reproductions of the 1679 Hellier are to be had in the STV950 and 1500 models by Scott Cao. All models of Scott Cao Violins are professionally setup and in a position to play.
