With its voluminous, mature, large and mellow sound, sweet in the upper ranges, this antique French violin model Breton from the famous violin making town of Mirecourt is especially recommended for adult musicians who appreciate the sound of the instrument. Built in the 1850s according to a proven model, this violin is on the one hand a typical but also particularly high quality 19th century work from Mirecourt, whose origin can be easily recognized by the distinctive style of the interesting, large scroll. The very nice transparent varnish is of golden light-brown color; it shows light patina and some signs of age and playing, which are not unusual for an obviously well played instrument of this age. Our luthiers have completely worked over this violin and made in ready to play, which has some minor flaws but further shows no significant cracks or repairs. This interesting antique French violin unfolds its large, rounded, voluminous tone, which is of sweetness in the upper ranges and good resonance. Like all our instruments, it comes with Corilon's trade-in guarantee, which guarantees 100% of the purchase price.
