Sonus faber pays homage to the great Antonio Stradivari.
As the Stradivari’s instrument, even Il Cremonese is
the result of scientific research and deep passion.
THE STRADIVARI'S VIOLIN
Inspired by the shape of Lilium, Il Cremonese is a tribute to the most famous creation of Antonio Stradivari. Its five non-parallel walls structure and the sides applied on the enclosure require a careful processing technique, as for a musical instrument: from the wood bending and shaping to the treatments of the precious Avional surfaces.
This is what we have in mind in designing the “acoustic environment” of every single transducer. Each volume is insulated with different materials from open cell thermoplastic foam to fibrous materials, similar to the felt used in pianos. The most appropriate material or materials are selected for each specific application.
This atypical Sonus faber form represents an evolution toward technological
and visual innovation, simultaneously maintaining the historic milestones
that marked the history of violin making, as well as the history of the Sonus faber brand itself.
