Hi, I’m Sofia, Italian violin maker.

The violin making tradition of my family, The Vettori’s, began in 1935 in Italy 🇮🇹

I’m sharing with you my 25 years of experience.
You can find my Priming Inside method into my step-by-step video course.

"Sofia, why do you color your violin INSIDE?!" 🎻

This is one the most common question my Star Pupils and my followers always ask me.

As you certainly know, in violin making everything is related to the sound at the end.

You could have an amazing, beautiful and good looking violin, but if it doesn’t sound well…it’s a big problem!

Inside the violin - Sofia Vettori
Inside the violin 1
I know personally tons of luthiers who are able to make really great Varnish, but they’re constantly struggling because their brand new instrument doesn’t sound as they wish.
 

And this situation make them frustrated, because at the end of day every violin maker sell his instruments to musicians (or music store that will sell them to musicians).

MY MISSION

My mission is to spread the beauty of art around the world by sharing my knowledge.

 

THAT’S WHY I CREATED THE PRIMING INSIDE COURSE.

The detail 99% of luthiers ignore

You should know there is a one important detail 99% of luthiers ignore.

In most cases it is what leads them to the downfall.

Let me take a step back.

We are luthiers. We sell to musicians.

Musicians are totally obsessed with sound.
 

And we, as luthiers and violin makers, should be extremely aware of this.

We should be constantly working to get the best possible sound out of our instrument: it’s a never ending process.

You know, after 25 years as a luthier and after more than 104 instruments sold…I can tell you for sure one thing:

Musicians buy instruments only if they’re 100% convinced and satisfied by the sound of that instrument. Period.

Otherwise, believe me, they’re not gonna buy it for any other reason in the world.

By ignoring this important detail this is what happens in 99% of cases (in chronological order):
 
  • They don’t know how to realize a beautiful singing instrument
  • Musicians are not fascinated by their instruments
  • Musicians don’t buy from them

Playability & SELLABILITY

One of the topic I always talk about with my colleagues is playability, that is the ability to make an instrument easy to play.

I personally think that playability is very important, but we shouldn’t forget about another very important topic…


SELLABILITY, that is 
the ability to make an instrument EASY TO SELL.

(It’s a new word I made up some years ago)


Sellability is one of the most underrated aspects of violin making and it is strictly related to the sound quality of the instrument.

You know why?


Well, we are luthiers. Our clients are musicians.

Musicians are totally obsessed with sound.


And they’re constantly working to get the best possible sound out of their instrument.

From when they are children, until the last day of their career.

Every single day of their life.
It’s a never ending process.
And we should be extremely aware of this.

 

The instrument doesn’t have to be only easy to play, but it need to have a beautiful sound.

And by ignoring this important detail this is what happens in 99% of cases (in chronological order):

  • They don’t know how to realize a beautiful singing instrument
  • Musicians are not fascinated by their instruments
  • Musicians don’t buy from them

That’s why I created this course.

Because what I do inside the violin is strictly related to the sound I want to achieve.

MY SECRET METHOD

After 25 years of researching and testing, I found out a secret method, a special process I do every time inside the violin before closing it.

And I can tell you for sure that this method really helps the instrument to sound beautifully.
 
The secret is that it’s not just a color: it’s a colored preparation.
 
So I put all my knowledge and discoveries gained in over 25 years of experience into my course “Priming Inside the violin” 

Inside the course I explain:
  • The exact process I do for the top, back and ribs before I close the body
  • All the materials you need to buy
  • How to prepare and apply all of them

I was lucky finding Sofia's video courses, a plain coincidence at the right moment.
What I like the most was that the courses turned out to be very easy to follow along. Safely guided by maestra Sofia she creates an atmosphere of joy that leads to a curious fruitful learning, with progress in small steps.
I had heard and only vaguely know about inside priming using different techniques, but it was nothing I had done myself or being taught, so I had really no expectations.
Priming the inside does not only give it a neat look but also makes it more stable against humidity changes and helping the sound.
It is easy to recommend Sofia's courses to anyone wanting to improve their own varnishing skills.
In addition to Sofia's deep knowledge, you also get several generations of wisdom with her and her courses.

I had many doubts whether seal my instruments or not, with what and why.
I didn’t expect to receive this bonus too: a beautiful instrument and good looking inside, whose photos attract the curiosity of potential customers, making it easy for me to establish a dialogue.

I have looked inside quite a few violins, both older and new.
None of them were finished on the inside.
I noticed that Sofia was finishing the inside of her violins before she glued the top table on.
Then I asked her about the process she uses and how it affects the sound.
With more than 25 years of experience in violin making, Sofia has developed a total violin finishing teaching package.
This part of the sealing not only goes inside to protect both the violin from age and the elements, but also enhances the sounds.
Many times the beauty of a violin will make the buyer pick your instrument up among others, as well as sound.
When you put these together, you have a win-win situation.

"Why Priming Inside is not part of Spirit Varnish Course?"

Because these 2 techniques have different process and they stand alone from each other.

You can follow my Priming Inside process using then another Varnishing Method.

But combining these 2 techniques is one of my winning horse.

🇮🇹 Italian tradition, my story, my legacy

I was born in a family of violin makers, so I had the privilege to start very early making violins.

I learned from my father Paolo Vettori, who learned from his father Dario I Vettori.

I’m lucky to keep the legacy of more than 90 years of violinmaking Italian Classic Tradition.

During my youth, I didn’t go to a classic “Violin making school”.

I learned in the most traditional way: my father and my grandfather handed down the knowledge to me.

I haven’t had anyone who told me “this can’t be done”, so I could try and experiment freely whatever I wanted.

That’s how I found the way that works, my way.

And I always encourage my Star Pupils to find their own way.

Thanks to my hard work I’ve received sincere compliments from some the most valuable luthiers around the world.

I was mentioned in Strad Magazine as well.

Now I can say it with confidence: you can be a luthier even without having attended a school.
 
Indeed, perhaps it reflects more the true tradition of craftsmanship handed down from father to son.

From Master to Pupil.

⭐️ What you give...will be yours forever

Sofia, why would you reveal your own secrets?!

You know, in the violin making industry, old masters tend to be very jealous of their knowledge and experience.

As if sharing their knowledge somehow would ruin and destroy all their career.

99,9% of them think like: “…if you’re good at something, keep it secret!”.

I am different.

I feel deep joy and fulfillment in sharing my knowledge and expertise with others.

I think this enriches everyone, both the teacher and the pupils.

You know, in the violin making industry, old masters tend to be very jealous of their knowledge and experience.

As if sharing their knowledge somehow would ruin and destroy all their career.

99,9% of them think like:

“…if you’re good at something, keep it secret!”.

I am different.

I feel deep joy and fulfillment in sharing my knowledge and expertise with others.

I think this enriches everyone, both the teacher and the pupils.

⭐️ What you give will be yours forever ⭐️

This is my motto.

What lessons are there in the course?

30 days Money Back Guaranteed

You're safe, I'll take all the risks.

You know, everyone can purchase the Priming Inside Course, watch through all the lessons and then ask for a refund within 30 days, just by sending me an email and without having to justify it.

In this case I will refund 100% of the course.

“Sofia, what about if someone look through all the lessons and then asks money back?”

Well, if someone acts like that they are not moved by a good purpose.

And as I want to deal only with good people, I’m more than happy to give money and not see him/her anymore.

This is my philosophy.

I wanna be totally candid, honest and transparent.

So…what have you got to lose?

Why should I purchase it TODAY?

While you’re progressing with the Varnishing, why not improve this aspect as well? 

It is a further opportunity for growth.

You think your instrument is not ready to be primed inside yet?

If I were you I would just purchase it today to have it in my library and to avoid to pay a higher price in the future 😉

Very simple.

If there’s a coupon also valid on the payment plan in installment, the total amount of the discount coupon will be splitted in the number of installments.

I’ll give you a little example, with arbitrary numbers.

Imagine you have a discount coupon of 90$ that works for the “COURSE X“, and you chose the option to pay in 3 installments instead of one shot payment.

Then you will get 30$ off on each of the 3 installments. For a total of 90$ discount.
