Hello to all. I sell my Old Antique Vintage Violin labeled JB Gagliano 1726.
Old Antique Vintage Violin labeled JB Gagliano 1726, LOB 356mm. This is a very rare antique violin dating back to the beginning of the 18th Century; a very unlikely find! It is in excellent condition, specially for its age. This violin is gorgeous looking and it's sound is even better, exactly the kind of sound you would expect from a violin from that period. It's very deep and sonorous, but also very well balanced and focused. I only find violins like this one a few times a year, they are very hard to find and their condition is not only that good. But here we have an exceptionally good sounding violin offered with very low reserve, a true steal! Its also important for me to mention that the arching on this violin is very well carved and although rather high, this violin does not have tubal sound. If you like its looks, I can assure you you would like the sound even better. As you can see in the picture, there is a pencil-written note on the back of the left hand side upper top which refers to a previous repair made in Vienna in 1894. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions!
