Simple design, exquisitely articulated.

With its austere detailing and broader outline, the Kemp demonstrates del Ges¹s movement away from the delicate Amati-like detailing found in his earlier instruments and towards the minimalist approach of his later works. This unrefined style almost suggests that del Ges¹ knew so clearly how to manipulate the materials as he crafted his instruments that he would not be held back by the details that did not directly influence creating impeccable sound.

This philosophy is perfect for a lot of musicians. Whereas there is a certain elegance to finely apportioned instruments with ornate scroll work et cetera, there is likewise an elegance to conspicuously unadorned instruments. There is an implication that the chief design and build focus is on great sound and playability and not on baroque apportioning. This instrument succeeds on all of those levels. A beautiful and fantastic sounding violin.
