My violin by Laura Vigato which I recently purchased from Cardiff Violins is very beautiful , well set up and easy to play. It is very even across the strings, and one can produce different tone colours quite easily. There is great depth to the sound and at the same time the upper registers are very clear, and the sound carries easily. It is modelled after a del Gesu of 1741, who was strongly influenced by the earlier makers of Brescia where Laura herself practices her craft. The instrument is developing into a true concert violin, and I commend this maker to those players looking for an instrument of great potential.
