Antique French violin by Etienne Perrin with certificate by J.-J. Rampal. This violin was made around 1830 in Mirecourt in the style of the period. This beautiful violin from the 19th century is a very good sounding model after Stradivari with well-crafted arching. The inlay work is particularly beautifully crafted and finished to a high standard. The one-piece top is made of regular, medium grained spruce, the one-piece back of flamed maple. The transparent, darkened light brown varnish has a wonderful patina. This attractive French violin is in very good condition, crack-free and undamaged. Its sound is warm, voluminous and powerful, with radiant trebles that emphasise the character of the instrument. A certificate from J.-J. Rampal confirms the authenticity and quality of this violin. Like all our violins and bows, this instrument is offered with a 30-day right of return and Corilon's trade-in guarantee.
