Joseph Bassot was born in Mirecourt in 1740. He established a workshop in Paris in 1764. This violin has a soloistic and cantabile tone color that bursts forth with ease. It is also sensitive to a player’s tonal whims; it is capable of producing a range of colors when coaxed. It boasts a gorgeous one-piece back that is elegantly varnished. This violin is of the highest quality with no cracks. A professional player would find it a useful tool to explore the world of sound.
