Violin 4/4 - Handmade by Frank Lee - year - 2009 - made in Shanghai China - Set-Up by Gary Ritter. Authorized dealer over 40 years - USA. I liked the sound of this instrument so much and used it on many of my music tours and gigs.
I have been in business over 40 years with violins-violas-cellos and basses. This instrument in my opinion is the best sounding I have heard at this asking price. Sale will include a certificate by Frank Lee with pictures of the glitter method used in the making process.
Description - Beautiful brown spirit varnish , antique finish , well-seasoned spruce top, maple back, sides and scroll. Ebony fingerboard, tailpiece and chinrest. Multifiber tailpiece adjuster for best sound.Seasoned Aubert "A" bridge , made in France. Obligato strings with gold plated "E". Frank Lee, a Taiwan-born and USA-trained maker currently makes his instruments in Shanghai.
His passion has been acoustics and until recently, almost all of his efforts have been made in plate tuning through both traditional tap tones and electronic means. He has recently begun a new model, yet unnamed, to introduce more sophisticated plate matching (acoustically matching tops to backs) and a beautiful subtle antique varnish. The materials used in Frank Lee violins are atypical of Chinese workshops.
American, Engelmann spruce and Alpine spruce are used for the tops and American eastern maple and Bosnian maple are used for backs, necks, and ribs. The models to date have all been new looking, in various colors, evenly applied. Frank Lee violins have been excellent sounding instruments, even and strong in tone, and very well liked by advancing players. 1 - Length body - 355mm. 2 - Upper Bout - 165mm.3 - Center Bout -114mm. 4 - Lower Bout - 210mm. 5 String Length - 328 mm.
