.This violin sings, and would make a good player very happy. The sound is sonorous, full and mature. It playes with ease, very responsive, and is even across the strings; up and down the finger board. Great dinamic range. This violin has a round and open tone that will be recognized for its unique color, beauty, and fine projection.
. This violin belonged to my relative who was professional musician in Radio Zagreb philharmonic orchestra from 50's to 70's
