It has been said that French violins are currently the cream of the violin market, and for very good reason. Quality French violins are extremely good, both in craftsmanship and tonal qualities, but have not gone through the huge inflation of prices that has hit the prices of Italian violins. In fact now is a great time to purchase a French violin as it is widely predicted that in the next few years these violins will see an explosion in prices comparable to that experienced by their Italian counterparts as the latter become increasingly unaffordable.
The violins featured in this collection are all genuine French violins by the named makers or their respective workshop (unless otherwise stated in the item description). They are all extremely good quality violins made by top craftsmen and possess beautiful tonal qualities.
