A very nice violin made by the Heinrich Heberlein company. It's a Da Salo model with double purfling similar to a Maggini model. This violin is in good shape and sounds Great. The tonal qualities are Smooth, Deep and very resonant. This violin will be a good candidate for any fiddler that is looking for a rich, resonant deeper tone. Though it has the deep tones, it is still very pure with clarity. It has Prim Strings and is set up to play with ease. I do have a money back guarantee on it. Send it back if it doesn't meet your expectations. It will be shipped in an old junky case for protection. Ask questions if interested. I do have a soundclip on my music page under old fiddle #20. Take a listen.
