The sound post is firm and correctly set, the bridge fits well and correctly set and the tuning pegs hold well too. It is all set and ready to go with a med to low playing action. This violin dates back to the early 20th century and certainly has developed its mellow sound with age and matured wood.
As we know strings are a personal choice for the player. New quality synthetic silver wound strings have been fitted but really top quality strings would make a difference to the sound of this mature instrument. Should you request high quality strings of your choice to be fitted then I will do so at their cost. The Bow has been rehaired and has a light application of rosin and will want a further application to gain the resonance and sound. Please be assured every care will be taken with packaging when posting this item.The advantage with this violin of this nature is that, with good care, will not loose it's value once the player may wish to move on to a Professionanal quality violin. Certainly no dealers or unjustified offers please, at this attractive price I would seek for it to go to an up and coming violin player or a more mature experienced player.
