French soloist violin after J.B. Vuillaume - restorations, special price

With its warm, sweet and extremely multi-facetted sound that is strong and dominant, this French master violin is an outstanding selection for professional musicians at the price. 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 violin has been covered with a rich transparent over-varnish, this allows us to offer this exceptional violin at a highly reduced price. The beautifully rising figure 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 originally blackened in the typically French style. The meticulous restorations 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 violin is our special recommendation at the price - has been meticulously set up by our experienced luthiers and is ready to play.
