Both the training and legacy of Gioffredo Cappa have been the focus of significant speculation since at least the 19th century, when he was assumed to have been a pupil of Nicolò Amati.
While Cappa's best works do bear Amati labels, his reliance on Amati models probably stems simply from the authority that family wielded on violin making in the late 17th century. It has also been suggested that Cappa was a student of Enrico Catenari, but recent scholars consider this lineage, too, to be improbable. Cappa's work is distinctive and shows some evolution in style.
Early on, ribs are set into the back in the style popular with Dutch and Flemish makers of the period. Later instruments show a marked Cremonese influence, especially the soft brown or red varnish, though his efforts are generally less refined than the models he worked from.
These instruments are traditionally made from 3 types of wood: spruce, maple, and ebony, the wood for making violins,viola’s and cellos must be dried for at least five years.
The top plate is always made out of spruce because from all of the types of regular woods spruce is the most resonant and hard enough that it can withstand all of the needed pressure. On the sides, the lower plate, and the scroll, maple wood is used.
Maple wood has the most resonance of all hardwoods. The fingerboard is made of ebony wood because it is very durable and can withstand the pressure from your fingers and the instruments vibration. The arching and thicknesses of the instruments plates are created using chisels and small planes, then adjusted and perfected with the help of a scraper and sandpaper.
Varnish is applied on the instrument using a paint brush and a paint spray. The color of the varnish is achieved using aniline pigment dyes and a very clear lacquer that is mixed in the necessary proportions.
The setup of the instrument is an important step because this will determine how comfortable the instrument is to play on, and sound that it produces.
The setup process includes installing the soundpost, bridge, strings, adjusting the height of the strings, and the oval of the bridge. If an instrument is professionally setup, it is very comfortable and easy to play on.
