French violin, J.T.L. Médio-Fino

The J.T.L. ateliers in Mirecourt offered the highly sought-after “Médio Fino” line to the public in particular so they could have access to simpler but solid-quality instruments with very good musical properties. Correspondingly, many of the “Médio Finos” available today have intense traces of use, und well preserved examples such as this old violin, which is in perfect condition, are quite rare. This unlabeled, but typical instrument was made around 1930; it was made following a broad model with scratched purfling. This old instrument is very visually appealing with its subtle and gentle arch, the radiant orange-brown varnish and its features. The excellent sound of this good violin is strong, clear and powerful, and our luthier has made it ready to play.
