A classic, modern Italian violin made with the utmost care by Parma luthier Andrea Zanre. A perfectly balanced violin, with clear and very responsive resonant tone, expressing a multitude of tonal colors, well suited for chamber music. The back is of a single quarter sawn slab of maple, with pronounced narrow to medium flaming, running at a slight diagonal. The top is of straight grained spruce of fine to medium width. Carefully applied varnish in light red-orange over an amber ground.
