A truly wonderful instrument.
My Paesold 807 violin was bought at auction recently. It has a beautiful appearance with an attractive antique finish. gold stud pegs and lovely fluted tailpiece. It's label says it was made in 1997. I am convinced it has never been played before. I believe that I am playing it in for the very first time.
It has a strong, clear voice although a fraction bright. (Perhaps a change of strings may change that if it does not mellow naturally.) I play in four amateur orchestras in the UK and I am thrilled with this superb violin.
