This good Couesnon violin features high-class craftsmanship and quality tonewoods, a clear sign of the workshops experience is the beautifully worked out arching and the large, typically blackened French scroll. The tonewoods are covered with a bright golden-brown varnish, its glance emphasizes the fine grains and the diverse textures of the different types of wood in a natural way. This recommendable French Couesnon violin is preserved crackfree in good condition, some deep scratches on top that have been filled have no influence on the sound or stability of this violin and are considered in the price.
