The Scott Cao "Vieuxtemps" is modeled after a violin made from 1710 by Antonio Stradivari (1644-1737). The original instrument was played by the French composer and virtuoso Henri Vieuxtemps. It is also known as the "Hauser", after the Hungarian virtuoso Miska Hauser who owned the instrument after Vieuxtemps. The Scott Cao Vieuxtemps model is bit brighter for a Guaneri pattern, but darker than a typical Strad pattern, and is easy to play. 0% FinancingAvailable.
