This violin has taken me through my conservatoire studies and although it doesn't have a reputable label it should not be disregarded by its name. It has a beautiful deep lower range and has a well balanced tone across the instrument as well as in higher positions on the lower strings. It is a beautiful violin and I have had many wonderful experiences playing it throughout my conservatoire education, please do get in touch if you would like to know more or have any questions.
