In this violin an amalgam of superb Chinese workmanship and an excellent choice of materials has resulted in a very appealing instrument with not only excellent tonal properties which greatly facilitate performance, but which also has strong visual appeal.

The attractive two-piece back is of clearly-flamed maple with a distinct medium curl sloping down from the centre seam to the flanks. The same wood is used in the neck and scroll, but the ribs are of broader flame - quite attractive. The top is of superb tone-spruce with a very straight medium to narrow grain. The golden amber varnish is thinly applied and quite transparent, allowing for the appreciation of the materials. Although the scroll is somewhat perfunctory, workmanship in the Fs, the purfling and mitres is very good. It is currently fitted with a French Aubert bridge.

This is a worthy instrument and would open a wide door as advanced upgrade for a talented violinist.
