Condition: Like New
A beuatiful master instrument from a Bulgarian maker. Highly flamed 1-piece back.
Frankly, this violin looks far more gorgeous in person with shimmering grain under different lighting.
Powerful volume, easy projection and mature tone that has developed nicely as the violin was played by an advanced student for 2 solid years. The instrument was traded in toward a Topa violin, but the player was very fond of the instrument and would have loved to have kept it.
Suitable for professional level players and advanced students; soloists.
Setup with Vision Titanium or Evah Pirazzi strings (your choice). Gorgeous Almondwood fittings. Certificate included.
* Chinrest, not shown, is included.
SOLD to a Customer in New Jersey
Born and raised in the Bulgarian violin centre of Kazanlak, Mitio Dimitrov studied at the "Kremona" instrument factory and has produced his own master grade violins since 1998.
His instruments are inspired by the works of great Italian masters like Stradivari and Guarneri and he only works with the woods "of excellent sound qualities from the Balkan region." Above all, he prefers to work with naturally dried sycamore and high quality spruce. Furthermore, he has created his own special alcohol varnish.
Mitio Dimitrov is a member of the Bulgarian regional Association of the Master-luthiers and the Chamber of Handicraftsmen. He participates in exhibitions and competitions in Bulgaria and in the International competition in Trienne (Italia).
In fact, in 2009 at the 12th International Triennial Competition his violin ranked 12th Place of the 198 violins from around the world.
Musicians from Bulgaria, Italy, Belgium, the United States, Canada and Japan play on his master-grade instruments.
