Mario Gadda (1931–2008) is one of the most important representatives of the modern Italian violin making traditions of Mantova

This modern Italian violin was made in the 1970's, as confirmed by Mario Gadda's certificate. Several Gadda brandstamps further confirm authenticity. The appearance of the violin is determined by slim and elegant model after Gaetano Pollastri. This particular violin is a younger instrument that was made in the 1970's and is like the other Mario Gadda violin in our catalogue heir of the Mantuan school, which extended from Mario's father, Gaetano Gadda, to his instructor Scarampella, and even back to Tommaso Balestrieri. Liberally applied bright orange-brown varnish points towards those great predecessors and gives the violin its striking appearance. If there is one attribute that defines Italian violins, it is their distinctive sound, which is wonderfully developed in this mature violin. This violins voice is shining and strong, radiant, bright, rich in overtones and a singing character, an extremely powerful and carrying instrument for soloists that we can recommend without reserve. We offer this modern Italian violin in perfectly preserved condition. It has been thoroughly worked over and set up by our luthiers and is, as all Corilon instruments, offered ready to play. The original maker's certificate by ario Gadda is included in the price.

Like all our instruments and bows, this includes our trade-in guarantee and an optional certificate of appraisal.
