Jean Baptiste Vuillaume 'a Paris
A better instrument can hardly be found in our shop. This French made Vuillaume copy is a singing angel. Boasting very tight grain spruce on the top with wonderfully long and wide F holes. A stunning two piece back with the sharpest corners and most elegant arching. Up to the scroll we find a charming upward slant on the curl and extremely sharp lines. The scroll did break in the past and has received a double cheek replacement to make for a solid repair. Set up with a French Aubert De Luxe bridge, rosewood fittings, and Peter Infeld PI strings.

Typical to French violins, this one sings with a very light sweet yet forceful tone, without being overly aggressive, unless you ask for it. This Vuillaume copy is extremely resonate, charming yet demanding, requiring finesse to extract peak performance. An ideal chamber music instrument for the performing artist. Very consistent and responsive.
