19th century French soloist violin

With a warm, sweet and extremely multi-facetted sound that is strong and dominant, this French master violin is a fine selection for professional musicians. It was made by an unknown master in the mid-19th century. The luminously brilliant varnish of an unusually lovely golden orange-brown is a stylish complement to the aesthetic of the tone woods the craftsman selected. The strongly falling lines of the elegant flames on the one-piece maple back convey a confident individuality as articulately as the expressive carving of the scroll, whose edges were blackened in the typically French style. Much like the minor repairs and touch-ups, the care with which the peg holes were bushed is an eloquent testimony to the appreciation that musicians have shown this intensely-played historic violin in the course of its approximately 150 years. This fine violins, which we received in flawless condition, has been meticulously set up by our experienced luthiers and is ready to play. This concert master violin has earned our best recommendation.
