About the violinThe violin was made in 2019 and is Caroline´s 31st violin, labelled `Speranza´. It is modelled after the instruments of G.B. Guadagnini.
It has a two piece back of moderately-flamed maple, the flame descending from the centre joint. The front is two pieces of medium-grained spruce. The varnish is golden-amber in colour and the length of back is 354 mm.
How does it sound?This violin is warm and dark with a compelling sound that really draws you in. There´s a slight suggestion of texture in the lower strings, contrasted with an almost oboe-like purity to the upper register. The violin projects very well and is a pleasingly interesting instrument to play.
ConditionThe violin is in original mint condition.
