This is a quality violin labelled ‘Carlo Bisiach di Leandro, Fece in Firenze, l’Anno 1928’
This instrument is just beautiful. The wood is of the highest quality, highly attractive and with excellent tonal properties. then it has been covered with the the most exquisite glowing golden-orange varnish which has a deep transparency. It is like someone splashed sunshine all over this violin and when a bow is placed to the strings it radiates its golden brilliance with every stroke of the bow. It is a very rare combination of physical beauty and stunning sound all wrapped up in one small package.
This is a violin that gives you a sound that radiates brilliance whilst maintaining a mature degree of warmth, and has both clean response and good projection. It has a full sound and a nice evenness across the strings.
With such great tonal qualities and a beautiful ease of playing you just want to play and play some more.
Furthermore this great example of early 20th Century craftsmanship remains in wonderful condition with only a few chips and nice wear to the varnish. It has all the hallmarks of the highest quality and with its truly impressive sound it is definitely a professional level violin.
A combination of properties like this are usually only found in ‘named’ Italian instruments costing in excess of £100,000.
This violin has been fitted with highest quality Pirastro Obligato strings, which match this violin really nicely, giving warmth to its naturally brilliant tone. The fingerboard has been professionally polished and new fixtures added to compliment the finish of the instrument.
As musicians ourselves, at Virtuosi Violins we know the importance to you of sound quality and playability, that is why every violin is very carefully selected for its tonal properties and after any necessary restoration is professionally set up for comfort and ease of playing as well as sound optimization. With such comfort, ease of playing and wonderful tone long hours of practice fly by and you will eagerly look forward to every practice session with renewed vigour and enthusiasm.
A great tone can give you the edge for any grades, orchestra auditions, competitions or public performances too.

I believe that every violinist should have access to a great sounding instrument capable of expressing the passion within them at an affordable price.
It is my mission to bring instruments capable of doing this to young and mature musicians alike, so that they can develop to the maximum as a musician and bring the joy of their hearts to the world.
All violins are personally selected by myself as instruments with great tonal qualities that I would be proud to own as my sole violin. Each is carefully checked for build construction and condition. Any restoration work is done by my professional luthier partner and instruments are fitted with high quality fittings and usually Evah Pirazzi strings (although this may vary according to what we determine best suits the particular instrument). This is backed by a 12 months maintenance free guarantee - that is to say that we will undertake any maintenance required on your violin within this period free of charge. All that you need to do is bring/ship the violin back to us.
All violins come to you fully set up to their optimum and ready to play.
We regularly ship worldwide, FREE of charge to you and fully insured.
It is my experience that it takes at least 3 days of exclusive playing of an instrument to get accustomed to and appreciate it; with 7 days being preferable and the minimum time that should be allowed for trial of an instrument. Most shops allow 7-14 days for returns on purchases. I wish my customers a great buying experience and to have total confidence in their acquisition and consequently I give a 30 DAY RETURN PERIOD with a full refund of the purchase price provided that it is returned in the same condition.
Any quality violin is a substantial financial commitment and one that you want to be confident will not be a depreciating asset. I am confident that any violin that I sell will at least hold its value over many years if well looked after and the majority will actually gain in value - this has been the general trend over a long period of time. I am willing to take any violin that I have sold back should you decide to upgrade and will give you the full purchase price paid for it, provided that it has been well looked after.
I am here to help as much for you post-sale as I am before. I love to help and willingly give advice, assistance, and share my expertise and experiences at any time.
