French violin from the workshop of Paul Didier, Metz, 1968

Built in 1968, this modern French violin made in the workshop of Paul Didier in Metz is a strong sounding piece, with its brilliant clear, strong and radiant sound that is well-balanced, precise, rich in overtones and with enough assertiveness. Paul Didier's dated original label confirm the violin's provenance. The top is made of moderately grained spruce of the Vosges mountains, the two-piece back is made of mildly flamed sycamore maple and has a typically French bulge. Good workmanship can be seen in the details. We offer this Paul Didier workshop violin undamaged, crackfree in very good condition, and like all old stringed instruments from Corilon violins, it has been completely worked over and set up in our atelier.
