This is a fantastic full sized violin from Campbell and Co. Trongate. Galsgow.
Our luthier believes it is turn of the Century from design, but we are not sure.
Have been unable to find out much about this instrument, as there seems to be no record of the company.
The label states “TWO GRAND DIPLOMAS and GOLD MEDALS.
Contacted a violin shop in Glasgow who said that they had seen them before and mentioned what good violins they are.
It is a lovely violin, with a sweet rich resonant sound, great depth, full of character, clear and bright.
It has a highly glossy varnish in a warm orange/brown lets the beauty of the deeply flamed two piece back shine through.
There are no splits or woodworm whatsoever.
Length of back 14 1/4″
Upper bouts 6 1/2″
Middle bouts 6 1/2″
Lower bouts 8”.
Our luthier has set it up with Corelli Crystal strings, a new bridge, and re fitted the pegs for easy tuning
If you require more photos, that is not a problem.
We will lower the bridge for shipping.
