This good sounding Italian violin from Cesena bears Dino lelli’s original label. It is of relatively simple make but its surpring, outstanding tone clearly conveys this spirit, an example of the way in which Italian luthiers uncompromisingly focussed on sound. Their approach is evident in the exceptionally delicate moulding and carving of the top and back. Without a small rib repair this attractive contemporary Italian violin has been maintained in very good condition. This violin sound is clean and expressive, which is full of warm power and good resonance.
