Description:

.

This violin exhibits all the traits of finest Italian violin making tradition starting with well chosen tone woods:

Two piece back of bold, flamed maple. The top is of beautifully shimmering medium grained spruce. The workmanship of the violin is outstanding showing nicely cut corners; well executed upturned round edges and precisely inlaid purfling. Note exquisitely fluted: "F" - holes, and elegantly carved scroll volute with defined under cut.

The varnish applied is of beautifully rich and translucent redish amber hue, over golden ground. It goes without saying that the highest level of workmanship is also applied inside this violin. The inside is neat, shavedlinings are inserted incorner blocks (all 4 of them) contoured and shaped. The Bass bar is hand carved and the sound post is properly positioned.

The fittings are quality one, and working fine. The fitted bridge is: Aubert A , and violin is set with new Pirastro Tonica strings.

.

Tone:

This violin sounds great with clear harmonic, and full sonorous Italian soprano voice rich with resonant overtones. It plays with admirable sustain, great "carry" power, and marvelous projection. It posses nice balance and progression both up, and down the fingerboard. I think the tone of this violin would please very accomplished player. It will be be recognized for it's unque quality, beauty and volume;and will stand out in orchestral setting.

REPAIRS:

This violin has visable past repairs on the top:

- 2.5 inchhair line fixedsaddle crack - stable.

- The neck was off, and thanset back at one point in time - holding fine. There are couple edge interventions - one on each side of the neck - pictured.

-Violin displays various nicks, dings scratches and the varnish ware - all normal for used instrument.
