With its bright, mature, large 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 1870s 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. Some repaired worm traces accounts for the low price of this fine quality Breton violin - and perhaps for the instrument's particularly good sound in the price range. Our luthiers have completely worked over the violin and made in ready to play, which further shows no cracks or repairs. This interesting antique French violin unfolds its bright, matrure, large yet clear 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.
