This beautiful Collin-Mezin violin was made in Mirecourt in 1924. With some blemishes we offer this noble violin at a special price. The model is appropriately arched with a two piece back. The top is made of medium grained spruce, the back, ribs and scroll of deeply and closely flamed maple. This beautiful and exceptionally sonorous violin delights with its mature, warm and radiantly open sound, well balanced across the strings and registers. The Collin-Mezin fils violin responds very easily and has a warm and mature, endearing, sweet and overall very well-balanced sound. Like all our violins and bows, including Corilon's trade-in guarantee and an optional certificate of value.
