Baroque violins are a luthier's subject whose importance has been steadily increasing since the early music movement and the establishment of historical performance practice. The young Italian luthier Matteo Masetti demonstrates his knowledge of the secrets of baroque playing with this beautiful sounding Italian baroque violin.

The high art of baroque violin making lies not only in the furnishing with baroque bridge, soundpost, baroque bass bar and the characteristic short and veneered fingerboard. In addition, the design of the vibration conditions places special demands on the construction of the body, which Masetti has excellently succeeded in doing on this baroque violin, which bears his original label. Its striking individuality and the excellent craftsmanship with which it was built can be seen at first glance in the detailed carving of the scroll and the neatly cut sound holes. With its rare beautiful sound, this pretty and handy light Italian baroque violin, ready to play immediately, meets the highest demands: The warmth and bright character of its voice, which is pleasantly mellow in the lower ranges, opens up rich interpretive possibilities with good precision and power.
