Description

Maker: Marcel Deloget

Year of construction: 1988

This violin being one of his last instruments, it displays Deloget’s craftsmanship in an extraordinary way both in the sound it produces as well as the appearance of the violin itself. It also bears a few of his trademark symbols, such as a fleur-de-lys carved into the back of the scroll as well as his stamp next to the label inside the violin.

This violin has a very strong top register, projecting extremely well. The low and middle register have a beautiful and sweet sound, reminiscent of the older french school of violin making. It would make an ideal instrument for a high level student or any chamber or orchestral musician.

As the winner of the Grand Prix Expo Inter Paris in 1937, Deloget was known for using his own violin models rather than copying those of Stadivarius or Del Gesu as well as developing his own characteristic varnish (gold-amber hue with a shiny finish).
