CHACONNE
Antique Collection


CHACONNE

CHACONNE, as a dealer of string instruments, repaired and restored many Old Italian instruments including Stradivari, through dealing with a vast number of instruments for more than three decades.

Through close observation of many great Italian master’s works, we have found a structural principle common to Old Italian masterpieces with impressive sound.

This principle and acoustic theory was formed into a new instrument “CHACONNE.”

Most recent work of “CHACONNE” is reminiscent of that of Stradivari, in the aspect of both sound and look.

Please feel free to contact us with your interests in “CHACONNE.”

"I can only say that it is a great blessing to be playing on CHACONNE cello."

We are so thrilled with the new cello and bow! Even in the two months since getting them, the sound is beginning to really grow. The response is amazing, and just the slightest hint of vibrato brings a warmth and shimmering glow. Having played on some Stradivari cellos, and even being able to directly compare this instrument with one makes me even more pleased with it.

"This instrument convinces me that even pianissimo reaches the back of a hall, similar to Stradivari."

I once took my N.Gagliano (Napoli 1750) to CHACONNE for repair, and was able to borrow a Guarneri del Gesu as a replacement for the period and also used it in a recital. I had been using Gagliano for approximately 25 years, and was satisfied with it; however I felt a world of difference with the excellent Guarneri. I wondered why there is so much difference in contemporary works and was not able to forget the feeling of Guarneri for a while. Around this time I played a “New CHACONNE” at the CHACONNE Exhibition and was surprised at the vibrancy, touch and tone of the same kind, which led to make a purchase decision on the spot.

" People around me say that it looks new but has a tone of old or is close to old violins."

I used to use old violins as I never had new ones; however when I played this new violin for the first time, its depth and strength was comparable to old ones, which was shocking to me.

When I play it, there is not much difference in comparison with old violins I had been playing, and besides, this instrument has the youth and vitality to respond to how I play more than old ones. Since it also has the taste of old, I decided to buy it expecting that it will teach me many things for my practice in the future.

"I have studied music with CHACONNE violin for this one year and my music life has much changed."

One year ago, I met CHACONNE violin at exhibition of CHACONNE.I just went to the exhibition to play and enjoy various violins, but once I played CHACONNE, I was fascinated by this violin and could not give up.
Until then, I had played some new violins, but I didn’t like these new tones, so I didn’t expect CHACONNE to have nice tone which I like.

Antique Collection

For the last 40 years Chaconne has accumulated an impressive collection of old European instruments, including masterpieces of the most famous Italian violinmakers such as Stradivari and Guarneri ‘del Gesu’. These fine instruments are not exposed for sale but are kept as a private collection with the intention to maintain and preserve a precious world’s heritage. However, Chaconne offers a rental service to give musicians the chaconne to play one of these jewels.
