Antique French Mirecourt violin, c.1880 after J. B., Vuillaume - warm, sweet tone

This unmistakably French Mirecourt violin with its attractively antique appearance was crafted in the 1880's in Mirecourt, the famous violin-making town in the Vosges Mountains. The same region also provided the beautiful tonewoods for the instrument, which was patterned after a model by Jean-Baptiste Vuillaume. The luminous orange-brown varnish shows slight signs from playing and patination; the deeply carved scroll is distinctly French in character. The violin makers in our workshop have thoroughly gone over this gorgeous, undamaged Vuillaume copy, set it up and made it ready to play to a high standard. The warm, large, rounded yet clear sound of this violin has a mature, ringing undertone and is very well balanced, sweet and resonant: it is a good example of the high tonal standards of the French violin-making tradition.
