The player isa student who welcomes your comments. RICH SOUND...A REAL violin is a wonderful example of the work
oflate 19th century violinmaking...a fine
example of the luthier's craftsmanship.
and likely the violin is an original design of the maker's.
It bears the maker's original, handwritten label.The
powerful, rich, velvetyvoice of this violin speaks for
itself. As usual, I have included a video sound
sample so that you can judge it for is a gorgeous viola.....unusual but with the most
powerful and resonant sound I've heard in quite some
time. It sounds almost like a cello with deep, growling,
basstones & soaring trebles. I am very impressed
with the rich, lush, powerful sound. Its perfectfor
a any advanced violinist or is a strong violin with a powerful voice...likely due
to the maker's high-arched design. It has a wonderful,
mature sound...deep bass tones, full of resonance...
and clear, singing treble tones...a nice old,
mellow sounding instrument.
