One piece back. Ernest Kohler, Edinburgh Scotland. This violin has an exceptionally beautiful sound.  With its clear, resonant and dark voice which has matured as the violin has aged, it continues to motivate students today: in terms of its fullness and character, the sound can hold its own against many full-sized instruments. Beautiful tone woods, especially the attractive one-piece flamed back, shape the identity of this instrument, which we offer in excellent condition.  It is ready to be played immediately after being carefully worked over by Phil Whitehead.
