French violins - pure elegance
French violins are characterised by a beauty and elegance of appearance. Violins from France usually have a dark, very mature, clear tone. They are, similar to German violins, built to a high standard of workmanshop. It is not uncommon to see French violins with beautiful oil varnishes. Mirecourt is considered the centre of French violin making. We especially recommend violins from France that were made in Mirecourt in the 19th century.
