The ‘Infidel’ is simply my name for a smooth-shaped violin, a design now closely associated with me but even Mr Strad himself made some.

Often considered a modern classic, the instantly recognisable Infidel is a smooth, simple and neat form of violin that generally offers a more mellow and forgiving sound to the player. Basic dimensions and construction are the same as conventional violins, but without the points (corners), and usually with my simple ‘open scroll’ design.

I can offer them in a range of colours, with a broad choice of purfling and other details.
