The certificate may already be requested from the relevant institution, so that you can reserve your instrument. The physical withdrawal of the product can only take place starting from 20 April.

Bonus Stradivari is a big discount on musical instruments.

Who has already used the 2016 Stradivari Bonus, can request the Stradivari 2017 Bonus. The final part that will be discounted will be decreased by -1000 euros.
example: Purchase of a new violin, gross price 3000.00 euros – 65% discount (bonus Stradivari 2018) which amounts to 1950.00 euros. From that discount the bonus already used (1950.00-1000.00) = 950.00 euros is removed. The discount to which you will be entitled is therefore € 950.00.

In the absence of funds, it may be impossible to join the bonus offer, in this case Atelier Cesarini offers the possibility to join the Vivaldi Offer. You need to be a student here in Italy.

Everyone can ask for OFFERTA VIVALDI, our best offer that is valid along the year.

Rehairing, some advices (example during a violin bow rehair)

Our advice to evaluate a rehairing.

  • if the hairs are pulled out from the head or the frog, it could be a loosening of a weak node in the “mortes”.
  • if the hairs break too easily or stretch too much, or they are of poor quality or the flame on them is used to “stretch them” (bad procedure, here is bandit!). There may be other causes, but they are more rare.
  • if the bow leap too easily, compared to before, maybe a wrong number of hairs have been mounted.
  • if they wooden tap slip out from the “mortes” of the frog or head, it means the mortes may not have been properly adjusted.
  • if you find a split tip and before it was not, probably the wooden tap has been  plugged too much pressurized.
  • if the frog breaks off, a wooden tap in the wood will probably be too pressurized.
