Violin Measurements

                                     

             The Following measurements are used when making new instruments, and are a general guideline. 
       A lot of older violins do not conform to many of these contemporary measurements.
       You have to take the character of the original instrument into account when making a reproduction.
             I have made a separate measurements table further down the page of old instruments which you may care
      to consult.

                              
       ( ALL MEASUREMENTS ARE IN   (mm) )
