Length of violin is 59.0 cm; back is 35.4 cm and bottom is 20.2 cm
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, andgreat 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. I believe
this instrument will please a most discriminative player.

- I can see closed 3 inch closed hair line seam in the front and about 4 inch closed center seam in the back.
- There is a shim placed under the finger board - done very well, and the bridge is of normal height.

age: dings, scrapes, gauges, and varnish ware in areas.
This violin is in a good playing condition being
recently completely checked, and adjusted. New set of Pirastro Tonica strings.
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.
The photos below are representative and revealing. If you have questions please
email and ask. This is a good opportunity for someone to buy this violin at
price far less than a fancy shop would charge.
This violin is sold as is, and since this is sale where buyers
decide the price, the sale is final.
I am selling only the violin. The bow is already sold. There is an old case,
but no papers or certificate to go with this instrument.
