Pre-owned Man Claudiu Violin #21
Man Claudiu, violinmaker now near Bolzano, Italy, made this beautiful instrument for us by hand in his Romanian workshop in 2006. Only the finest European woods, fittings, and oil varnish are used in the making of each masterpiece.
This violin was used by a professional violin player and teacher, very well cared for.
Christian's tonal review:
- Mellow sound but can be powerful, versatile
- Inviting, warm tone
- Equal across strings
- Beautfiful projection
The tone of the Man Claudiu violin is very complex - rich and warm with fantastic strength and clarity throughout the registers. It is suitable for the pre-professional player or for one who wishes never to have to upgrade, as the quality of Man Claudiu's work is equal to that of many of the most popular contemporary instrument makers. While the tone is spectacular from the very start, the reward comes later as it begins to break in and the tone matures with the player.
