The ribs are of matching maple and the head is slightly more plain. The front is two pieces of fine-grained spruce and the varnish is a rich amber colour. The violin has a length of back of 353 mm.

This is a smooth instrument with a dark, singing lower register. It rings really well and has a straightforward, open character.
