Since I do not play violin I have engaged a help from a good amateur player, and here are his comments:This violin has warm, sonorous soprano voice that would make a good player very happy. The sound is full and mature. It plays with ease, very responsive, and is even across the strings; up and down the finger board. Very fine dynamic range, good power and projection. He also mentioned that it will profit a great deal from a fresh set of quality strings.
This is a sale, with a very low opening offer, and sale is final. I do not have original bill of sale, or papers relevant to its history & origin. Consequently this violin is to be sold as is. Please offer responsibly; make sure you want it, and you can afford this violin prior to offerding.

There is no case, or bow coming, but the violin will be properly packed, and boxed for a safe delivery.
