It's easy to play, and the sound is rich and smooth, slightly dark and wistful. In all a very attractive fiddle.
Condition: Some wear to the varnish beside the fingerboard; otherwise extremely clean. No cracks, repairs or other issues, and very few scratches.
Set-up: New sound post and Aubert bridge. New rosewood pegs and chin rest. New Wittner tailpiece and Helicore strings.
Price, including a new case and bow: €950
