This Charles Simonin French violin is suitable for male soloist players, with an exceptional and seldom-encountered soloist sound combining outstanding power and volume. Charles Simonin made this violin around 1860 in Mirecourt. Its patinated, transparent varnish of a luminous orange-brown color draws the eye to the intricate grain of the maple back, that was executed in one piece. Charles Simonin, student of J.B. Vuillaume, applied his brandstamp inside and gave this large violin a unique style with its antiquated aesthetic, oppulent edges, the elegant scroll full of character and delicate inlays set far from the edges. Some larger expert restoration on top does not affect the large, extremely powerful sound of this magnificent violin and allow us to offer this fine instrument at a highly attractive price. The sound is warm and matured, radiant, remarkably rich in volume and size. We offer this extremely powerful Charles Simonin violin ready to play after having been meticulously worked over in our atelier for restoration and lutherie.
