A beautiful instrument by Philippe Briand, who is based in Canterbury, Kent. Philippe specialises mostly in restoration and he is very well known for his beautiful varnish. The violin is very even and is a delight to play. The bow seamlessly travels from one string to another and the sound is very smooth throughout. It has good projection and the sound carries nicely in larger spaces. It would be very well suited to orchestral or chamber music playing.
