The concept of the “All American Line” was born from the desire to build affordable, yet high quality violins for the intermediate player. After years of working with many students, we came across a wide range of factory and handmade violins, from all over the world, that possessed inconsistent qualities and levels of craftsmanship. We believe it is important for musicians to know all aspects of an instrument’s origin. Where it was made, with what materials and by which violin maker.
Wm Mason II Violin Shop wants to build expertly handcrafted and affordable violins in Fredericksburg, VA. We are using red spruce and red maple sourced from the Pacific NW. We have chosen two models Guarneri del Gesu and Nicolo Amati because of their distinct differences in style and sound.
In 2018 we will be celebrating 10 years serving Fredericksburg. What better way to commemorate this anniversary than to release our own product. American Wood. American Makers. Made in Fredericksburg VA. The All American Line.
WM Mason II Violin Shop is currently in the development phase of its first run of the American Line violins. Contact us today to reserve your first generation WM Mason II American made violin.
