Maker: Colin Cross
Model: Milanese Testore
Year of construction: 2019
A very good violin, made by Master Luthier Colin Cross in his workshop in Deal. This violin is wonderfully made, reminiscent of the old Milanese school. It has a beautifully sculpted body and a wonderfully antiqued varnish.
The particularity of this violin is that it is a 7/8th size. This means that it’s extremely comfortable to play on, especially with smaller hands. However, it retains the full and rich sound of a full size instrument. It is very powerful with a rich tone in all registers, especially the low and high-end.
An instrument perfect for someone with small hands or anyone who is looking for a smaller instrument.
