Fully Guaranteed

Every instrument Ada creates is entirely handmade and the procedures and techniques that go into their construction are the same used by the Classical Cremonese Masters, passed down from generation to generation of violin makers.
The varnish and pigments, all handmade by Ada, follow age old recipes. The varnish is only applied by brush.
Each instrument is unique and impossible to duplicate as a result of its distinctive combination of maple and fir, individual timbre and the particular aesthetic effect of its varnish.
Every instrument comes with a Certificate of Authenticity, a portfolio of photographs, a description and measurements that identify it in detail.
Moreover each instrument made by Ada carries a Makerís Warranty covering exacting and ongoing acoustic fine-tuning work that the owner may benefit from throughout the important growth development stage of the instrument.
Continuous and regular revision enables the maker to optimize and increase the instrumentís acoustic potential, thereby tailoring it to the musicianís specific and personal artistic requirements.
