Italian violin, Aristide Cavalli, Cremona

Carefully selected tonewoods used by the Cremonese violin maker Aristide Cavalli, head of the "Officina Claudio Monteverde" in Cremona, help to create the huge and bright sound of this mature Italian violin built in 1923. The top is made of regular medium grained spruce, the one-piece back of deeply flamed maple, with a richly applied soft oil varnish, shimmering in a transparent, dark bordeaux-red color. The purfling is quite characteristic for Cremonese violins and the highly accentuated edges contribute to the individual character of the violin, in combination with the distinctive shape of the soundholes and carving of the scroll. Some minor restoration to top and ribs have no effect whatsoever on the sound or the playing characteristics of this very well preserved Italian violin and are considered in the price. This powerful Italian violin is suitable for professional use, with excellent clear volume and liquid sound, textured and colorful. As is the case with all of our instruments, this fine Italian violin was also completely set up by our expert for restoration and is offered in fine condition, ready to play.

A certificate of appraisal can be ordered for this violin.
