7/8 - very good French J.T.L violin

This instrument is a good sounding old French 7/8 violin by Jerome Thibouville-Lamy (J.T.L.). The violin bears a "copie de" label indicating the basic model of the work. Inside, the violin bears the original JTL stamp on the top block. The woods are especially beautiful. The one piece top is made of mediun grained spruce, the one piece back of attractive maple. the transparent varnish is of a warm golden red-brown color over a golden ground. The varnish shows extensive wear from playing (obviously, the violin has been regularly played by a very good player). The instrument is undamaged and crackfree. It has been overhauled by our luthier and is set up with new pegs, a new bridge, soundpost and strings. The violins clear sound is of good strength, warmth and beautiful resonance. The sound is remarkably well-balanced and the violin is convenient to play.
