I am offering for sale my 4/4 “Pollastri” violin. This is a fine instrument with a clear, fine voice. Just beautiful. I purchased this violin from Jarek Powichrowski, owner of Princeton violins, in 2014. Jarek is a very talented violinist and luthier up in Princeton, NJ. His asking price for this violin was $4500. LOB is 361 mm. The two-piece back is of beautiful tiger maple oriented in a herringbone pattern, and the original finish is wonderful, with one small dime sized area worn through on the back. A very well executed repair is shown in the last photo. You can view Jarek’s demo video of this violin at: or simply go to youtube and search: “Violin Augustus Pollastri 1906”. There’s only one with that title.
Since obtaining this violin, I had my luthier replace the ebony tuning pegs with geared Wittners. I currently have a set of Evah Pirazzi strings on the violin. I’m offering this violin, as well a as few others, because I have too many. I can offer a nearly new Core 4/4 case for an additional $95. Please feel free to call or email with any questions.
