Italian violin made in 1985, by Salustri, Albano Laziale

This good sounding Italian violin hails from Albano Laziale in near Rome, a metropole in which the style and high standards of the old masters were upheld, reflecting a great appreciation of craftsmanship. This 1985 violin by M. Salustri is of relatively simple make but its surpring, outstanding tone clearly conveys this spirit, an example of the way in which Italian luthiers uncompromisingly focussed on sound. Their approach is evident in the exceptionally delicate moulding and carving of the top and back. Free of cracks but with a partial overvarnish on top, this violin has been maintained in good condition. Neither the body nor the notably elegant scroll show any repair, and there were slight touch-ups on the light orange-brown varnish. Neither of these, however, nor the partial overvarnish do influence the nuanced and expressive sound, which is full of warm power and good resonance. The restoration specialists at our atelier have spared no expense in setting up this rare Italian instrument down to the best playing standards. It is now ready to play, and we especially recommend it for demanding musicians. The price includes a certificate by Giovanni Antnonini, Rome, which can be viewed by clicking the "view certificate" button.
