Description:

This violin exhibits many traits of finest Italian violin making tradition starting with well chosen tone woods: Two-piece back of bold, flamed maple is matched with sides and neck. The top is of beautifully shimmering fine to medium grained spruce. The workmanship of the violin is outstanding showing fine edges and corners and precisely inlaid purfling. Note beautifully shaped and executed "F" - holes, and nicely carved scroll volute.

Needless to say on the inside violin shows same attention to quality and detail: linings, contoured 4 corner blocks, and hand carved bass bar. The varnish is beautifully rich amber/honey color; over golden ground.

.

Tone:

This violin sounds marvelous with very opulent vibrant tone rich with timber. Beautiful dramatic resonant - Italian soprano color, clear harmonics, and great volume. Well balanced violin on all strings and up and down the finger board. The sound sustain is and projection great. This violin is suitable for highest level of professional violin playing.

This violin was passed down to me along with others from a family member who was serious violin collector and violinist in 50's and 60's. Since I didn't get any papers relevant to it's past; I have none to go with the violin.
