Carefully selected tonewoods used by the Cremonese violin maker Aristide Cavalli, head of the "Officina Claudio Monteverde" in Cremona, help to create the huge and bright sound of this mature Italian violin built in 1920. The top is made of regular medium grained spruce, the two-piece back of deeply flamed maple, with a richly applied soft oil varnish, shimmering in a transparent, dark bordeaux-red color. The purfling is quite characteristic for Cremonese violins and the highly accentuated edges contribute to the individual character of this Italian violin, in combination with the distinctive shape of the soundholes and carving of the scroll. This powerful Aristide Cavalli violin is suitable for professional use, with excellent clear volume and liquid sound, textured and colorful. As is the case with all of our instruments, this fine Italian violin was also completely set up by our expert for restoration and is offered in fine condition, ready to play.
