About the violinThe violin was made in 2018 and is Caroline´s 30th violin, labelled `Alba´. It is modelled after the instruments of G.B. Guadagnini.
It has a two piece back of very pretty, subtly figured maple. The front is two pieces of medium-grained spruce. The varnish is reddish-amber in colour and the length of back is 354 mm.
How does it sound?Really good! This is a big sounding violin with great reserves of power and depth. Like Caroline´s 2018 del Gesù model violin, this one has a silky smoothness to the tone but with a boldness to the sound that is pure Guadagnini. Caroline´s infinite patience with finding the best sound from each piece of tonewood is very evident in this instrument.
ConditionThe violin is in original mint condition.
