Vintage full-size violin labeled Antonio Loveri (a trade name under which the Tonk Bros. imported). Solid carved spruce top, solid carved maple one-piece back. Drawn-on faux purfling is almost completely faded away, giving an austere, folksy look. There are some repaired top cracks which are stable, and a repair to the lower bout which is also stable, though quite visible. Strung with Dominant strings, with Pirastro Gold E.
This violin has a throaty, forceful bass. Nice highs, but low notes come out really well. Very folksy sound-- great for fiddling. Bright and clear.
The following are included:
- Brown "alligator" hard case
- unmarked handmade bow
- two practice mutes
- two additional fine tuners
