Maker of Violins, Violas and Cellos

Lulabelle Violin owned by Willie Docto

Lulabelle Violin is named in honor of Thurmond's favorite Aunt Lucille DePamphillis, age 93, of North Palm Beach, Florida.  The instrument is modeled after Fritz Kreisler's 1733 Guarneri del Gesu'.  It was sold to Willie Docto, a freelance orchestral violinist in Vermont and Washington, DC, in May, 2006.  The top is of two pieces of close grained spruce harvested in Northwestern Canada in 2000.  The back, ribs and scroll are of Bosnian maple.
