This violin has an exceptionally beautiful sound.  Made in Mirecourt, France approximately 90 years old.

Marc Laberte (1880 - 1963) was a violin maker and bow maker who inherited the Laberte family firm, merging it with Fournier Magnié in 1920.

With its clear, resonant tone which has matured as the violin has aged, the sound can hold its own. Beautiful tone woods, especially the attractive two-piece flamed back, shape the identity of this instrument. In excellent condition, it has been professionally set-up and serviced by Phil Whitehead, and is ready to be played.
