ASIAN “HERITAGE OF CREMONA VIOLIN” 2006
This instrument demonstrates a mastery of the art of violin making — cleanly cut f holes, graceful arching, beautiful edging, well-defined scroll and attention to detail that set it apart from many Asian copies of Italian instruments.
Beautifully chosen maple and spruce with the pronounced flame on the bookended two-piece back rising slightly towards the flanks. Ribs and scroll to match. A soft, radiant, skillfully applied reddish-brown varnish polished to perfection. This violin being over a decade old has afforded it time to mature tonally, yet it’s in pristine condition.
