This splendid English violin with expressive playing marks is one of John Lowe's rare works and was made in Glasgow, Scotland, in 1923. He created fine violins with great passion and exquisite detail, investing considerable amounts of time, patience and consideration as he developed high-quality varnishes. The fruits of his labour are clearly evident in the refined instruments which he produced throughout his life: they mirror not only his talents as a luthier but also the sophisticated demands of an experienced musician. This fine violin also communicates his flawless artisanal abilities and his quality standards, one manifestation of which is the excellent tone woods he chose. The top is made of spruce, whereas the two-piece maple back that has been tested for harmless growth irregularities on the outside features exceptionally attractive slightly rising flames. The work of a mature and experienced hand can be seen in the clean carving of the sound holes, the scroll and the peg box. Charming shimmering and radiance of the patinated oil varnish effectively accentuates the instrument's inimitable personality. Its marvellous sound is full of character, mature clarity and radiance as well as a precise response. After having been set up completely by the restoration experts at our atelier, this fine English violin is now ready to play, and we heartily recommend this violin. It is full of character, an instrument for demanding musicians, as aesthetically lovely as it is wonderful and unique in sound. Like all our violins, free shipping with 30-day return policy, optional certificate and unlimited trade-in/exchange guarantee.
