This French 3/4 sized violin is one of the rare small sized instruments that are fully comparable to 4/4 instruments due to their exceptionally strong sound. Built approx. 1900 in the French violin making town of Mirecourt, the 3/4 violin was made on a French styled, wide and flat Stradivari model. Flawless craftsmanship is clearly visible at the purfling, that was accurately inlaid and finely extends into the corners. The large scroll is a very typical Mirecourt trade work, beautifully carved. Quality tonewoods are visible under the transparent, luminous light-brown varnish; the beautifully flamed maple of the back is especially worth to be mentioned. We offer this 3/4 violin in very good condition, undamaged, and ready to play. It takes no wonder that this 3/4 violin convinces with a voice full of character. Luthier-checked and in brought by our luthiers to immediate playing condition its warm and dark sound unfolds full of character and power, with warmth in the lower ranges. Like all instruments and bows from us, this includes our trade-in guarantee and an optional certificate of appraisal.
