Barbé violin was built in 1911 in Mirecourt, most presumably in the world-famous workshops of Jérôme Thibouville-Lamy (JTL), as many typical features of premium JTL-instruments may indicate: The wide Stradivari model features flat archings, a delicate purfling and a wonderful back that was made in two piece, covered by a beautiful golden-brown varnish.

The sound of this F. Barbé violin in is full of character, mature and warm features excellent resonance.
