Andras Nagy, Miskolc, Hungary 2009
Hungarian violins have long had the reputation of being ideal “players’ instruments” being that they are often well crafted, beautiful instruments with superb tonal characteristics which, despite all, are modestly priced. This violin possesses a stunning one-piece back and excellent craftsmanship throughout. Its tone is well balanced and has a focused core with complex overtones. It was purchased new by a professional violinist with an international career and has been thoroughly played-in. It is an extremely responsive and reliable instrument that would suit advanced students, professionals and teachers alike.
