This recommendable handmade English violin was made by William Robinson in London in 1943 and it bears the original label. The mature appearance of the thinly applied golden-yellow colored oil varnish which has developed patina is complemented by good quality tonewoods, medium grained hazel spruce that was used for the top and deeply flamed maple, that was used for the one piece back. The model is a Stradivarius model with broad c-bouts and full medium arch, the violin features a quite attractive individually shaped violin scroll. This beautiful English violin is preserved crackfree and in excellent condition. It has been worked over by the luthiers in our workshop and is offered ready to play. The sound is of good strength and brilliant clarity, dark, silvery and resonant, rich in overtones, unique in character. Like all violins we offer online this includes Corilon's trade-guarantee and an optional certificate of appraisal.
