French 7/8 violin, approx. 1950, Laberte

This French 7/8 violin is preserved in new condition, it still bears the original Laberte seal at the scroll. A 7/8 violin that is suitable for highly demanding players and indeed a rarity - it was built mid 20th century in the French violin making town Mirecourt and is one of the premium quality works that originates famous workshops of Laberte. The traditional company was at the pinnacle of its international success in these years and offered an exchange guarantee for any instrument that was not completely satisfying their customers. This was a quite self-reliant promise that seems needless in the light of the premium quality of the 7/8 violin offered here. Its elegant, unmistakable French appearance is determined by the typical shape of the body and scroll, the shining and highly transparent orange-brown varnish and finally by the excellent tonewoods. Quality spruce was chosen for the top, a deeply flamed maple for the two piece back. The purfling and the soundholes are examples of careful and experienced craftsmanship by the luthiers. Our violin makers spent great time and effort to work over this strong and bright 7/8 violin, that is preserved in new, crack-free condition and unfolds its visual antique beauty as well as its bright, ringing sound, that is precise and features some dark French note.
