3DVarius, the revolutionary 3D printed electric concert violin, is set to make an appearance at the forthcoming Musikmesse, Frankfurt (5 to 8 April).
The creator of the 3Dvarius is Laurent Bernadac, a violinist and mechanical engineer. He wanted to create an electric violin which could fulfill all the needs of a classical musician. ‘The 3Dvarius was designed to facilitate the transition for all violinists from a classical violin to the 3Dvarius. Its dimensions can be personalised and adapted to any morphology,’ the company says.
Originally based on a genuine Stradivarius, the 3DVarius is created as a single piece and is claimed to produce a particularly accurate sound suitable for use in any musical genre. The instruments are manufactured by hand in Toulouse, France, and are customisable to an individual player’s requirements.
3DVarius will be exhibiting at Musikmesse Hall 8, aisle A05
