Violin CH. JB Collin-Mezin
Year of construction: 1909
Violin of the Parisian luthier Charles Jean Baptiste Collin-Mezin, model "Grand Prix", made in 1909.
This violin keeps all its original parts intact, including varnish. Although it shows obvious traces of use, it has not been retouched to keep its value and originality intact.
The violin is in perfect conditions of use.
Its sound is powerful, with a great tone quality and the characteristic sound of the old French violins.
This is a professional violin of high range and high performance, which requires the care of old violins, but in return offers the creaminess and sweetness of the great classical violins.
It has a certified document.
