SALE Petite Italian violin by Mario Gadda, 1972 (certificate Mario Gadda)

This petite Italian violin by Mario Gadda is suitable for small-handed professionals, an especially beautiful instrument that has a bodylength of 34.5. cm. It is one of his personal earlier works made in 1972. Inspired by the style of Amati he made this fine violin after the death of his father Gaetano Gadda during a time he was still largely influenced by the family's tradition. Mario Gadda's sucess as a violin maker should lead his workshop to one of the largest and most productive workshops that ranked among the well-known addresses in Italian violin making - well-known amongst musicians far beyond the borders of Italy, thanks to sophisticated restorations and top-quality new instruments. The varnish is a rich oil varnish of an intensely shining deep red-brown color - of rich premium quality, medium signs of use. The fine quality woods are medum grained spruce for the top, the back of narrow flamed maple. The body is elegantly shaped, top and back are arched in the middle. The scroll is carved with the utmost precision down to the finest detail, creating a magnificent tribute to its maker's skill. This petite Mario Gadda violin combines all the tonal qualities most desired by musicians: warmth, singing clarity and resonance, a somewhat mellow Italian undertone and beautiful sweetness in the upper registers.
