Fine Italian violin by Mario Gadda, approx. 1960 (certificate Mario Gadda)

This fine violin is an especially beautiful instrument made by Mario Gadda, it is one of his personal early works made in the 1960's. Inspired by the style of Martini Oreste, made this fine violin only a few years 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 orange brown color - of premium quality, with subtle antiqueings bearing medium signs of use. The fine quality woods are medum grained spruce for the top, the two piece back of deeply 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. A small but unfortunately well visible repair to the top at the saddle is stable and merely an optical issue - but allows us to offer this magnificient Mario Gadda violin at a reduced price. This 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. A certificate by Maro Gadda is inlcuded in the price and can be viewed with a click on the certificate button below.
