Musafia Aeternum Violin
Aeternum is an innovative re-interpretation of the classic violin case of the early 1700s, with its straight-sided, rounded-end design that experts think may have been invented by no less than Antonio Stradivari. The instrument is placed at a slant to make more room available for accessories.
The overall effect is of utility and modernity, but with just enough classic detailing and craftsmanship to make it truly special. Ingeniously curved structural partitions increase strength and room for accessories while lending the case a unique grace. Fully hand-made in limited numbers by Dimitri Musafia and his assistants in Cremona, the Aeternum remains a timeless design for an ever-changing world.
