Violin Labeled "Rigat Rubus, St. Petersburg" (No. 162)
A curious instrument with unusual construction of the body and scroll. Many of these violins end up as wall pieces, but with a new setup it has come to life. The setup includes a Despiau 3-tree bridge, new sound post, and Thomastik Vision strings. The sound is a little boxy with a pleasant resonance, and a slight edge that might be ideal for fiddle or folk music.
