3/4 - French 3/4 violin, J.T.L. Compagnon

This French 3/4 violin is an exceptionally good-sounding instrument from the sought-after "Compagnon" series by the J.T.L. workshops in Mirecourt, France, where it was built approx. 1900. The good sound features a noble character as it is typical for French violins, and has some convincingly powerful, both warm and clear notes. The 3/4 violin is preserved in best condition possible, and presents itself as a work of flawless craftsmanship, with a small, well carved scroll, finely executed purfling that is inlaid close to the edges, and a body with two-piece table and back. The original J.T.L.-Compagnon label proves the provenance of the instrument, that was designed after a successful Stradivari model. Our experienced luthiers worked over this charming violin completely and made it ready to play.
