Handmade in China, this Violmaster Italia violin is a Strad model with a nicely flamed one-piece back, shaded amber-orange varnish, ebony fittings with a Wittner-like tailpiece, and Zyex strings. It offers strong, medium-bright tone. This violin is in very good condition. Decent and very useable Chinese nickel-mounted wood bow and lightweight oblong case (one zipper does not work so well) included. Consignment.
