1/8 - fine French 1/8 violin, approx. 1870

Crafted around 1870 in the French town of Mirecourt, this historic French 1/8 children's violin is a premium children's instrument with exceptional acoustic qualities. Its warm, large sound is perfectly suited for competitive use, which can only be said of very few violins of such small size. The 1/8 violin's balanced voice is sophisticated and full of overtones, with good volume in the lower registers. Its mature character and outstanding resonance are compelling. The 1/8 violin was made using a tried-and-true Stradivari model. The dark, golden-yellow varnish, expressively carved scroll and the vertically positioned sound holes contribute to the individual character of this little violin, which is a true beauty featuring very mild flames on its one-piece maple back. We recommend this very well-preserved instrument, a true rarity, which the specialists in our workshop set up carefully and made it ready to play. It is an ideal partner for the musical education of young and ambitious talents.
