Between 2009 and 2017 we sold violins produced to our design under the MSV label. This is a register of those instruments.

We are aware that some violins have been sold on ebay with fake MSV labels (imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and all that). If you wish to know if an instrument with a “Martin Swan” label is authentic you can check the photos in this archive or email us about it.

This was our second label; for instruments numbered 1 to 84 we used a slightly different design
