French "Maggini violin" made in the 1880s in Mirecourt in France. This beautiful French violin that features a superior sound in the price range also has a highly appealing visual aesthetic. Well chosen tonewoods from the French Vosges mountains determine its appearance of the violin: premium medium grained spruce that was used for the top, and maple with narrow flaming for the two-piece back. Glossy orange-brown varnish over a golden-yellow ground with expertly made antiqueings - probably a recent work - covers the violin with medium arch, that features a delicate scroll and well-cut soundholes made in the style of Maggini. When played, this affordable violin reveals its exceptionally good sound and powerful voice, with a bright, warm and open, mature character, with a somewhat sweet note. We highly recommend this "Maggini violin", that is offered in perfectly preserved, undamaged condition, ready to play.

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