Old French Mirecourt violin, "Fournier", Laberte

Hand-crafted in Mirecourt, a "Fournier" trademark model labeled accordingly. Its richness of sound is remarkable! It is strong, powerful, very diverse. In the upper areas bright, clear, open, and literally singing. Mature and full of character, noble in the lower areas, thus strong and powerful. An instrument that responds easily and gives good players a great amount of real joy. Its appearance is - typically French - very elegant, with a particularly beautiful fluting, edgework and purfling: its pleasing warm color is caused by a rich, dark red-brown varnish over a golden yellow background. Of course ready to play.
