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.
