NICE OLD: " PICCAGLIANI ARMANDO " ITALIAN labeled VIOLIN
Full size violin
- The age and quality of this violin is obvious at the first site.
- Medium grain spruce is on top, flamed maple is used for two piece back. The varnish is deep honey amber, over golden ground.
The old label inside reads: PICCAGLIANI ARMANDO fece in MODENA l'Anno ........................ 1932 (last two numbers are in writting )
Length of violin is 59.0 cm; back is 35.8 cm and bottom is 20.3 cm wide.
The sound of this violin is worm, clear and mature: Broad tone with a rich timber, and solid core. Beautiful resonant soprano voice, with clear harmonics, and fine dynamics . Well balanced violin on all strings; and up and down the neck. This violin can be played aggressively without feeling sluggish, or softly for a sweet mellow tone, bit on the dark side. I believe this instrument will please a discriminative player.
- 3 inch closed hair line lower left top plate under the chin rest.
- Add on - top plate right upper bout - holding fine.
- two developing hair line cracks one on each "F" hole lower eye.
- Closed center seam on the back plate (partial) - stable.

The violin exhibits all normal signs of use and age: dings, scrapes, gauges, and varnish ware in areas.
This violin is in a good playing condition being recently completely checked, and adjusted.
In all: fine sounding instruments that you can get at reasonable cost. I trust that serious buyers on will recognize the value and offer accordingly.
