In search of lost timbre...

There are several sound features that are normally found on a violin, volume, power, projection, tonal balance, timbre etc...
Among those to be prioritized these may vary according to the preference of every musician and the purpose for which it is acquiring the instrument, soloists, orchestral musicians and students are very diverged from opinion, but the sound pattern globally accepted without doubt is the old Italian instruments. They have in particular timbre, a resemblance to the human voice, this becomes more evident when they are played in weaving a more acute, which our hearing has a greater sensitivity to understand. The objective incessant of modern makers is to resemble those instruments, not only in the aged appearance of the marks of time but also in mature and refined timbre that has thrilled people over the centuries.
