Xi Peng Violin, Beijing 2004
This is a highly flamed maple back violin made by Xi Peng. There is no label in the instrument. This Chinese trade violin has been fully set up at J.R. Judd Violins. The fittings are all ebony with a German Wittner tailpiece. The instrument is in excellent condition, strung with Thomastik Dominant strings with a Pirastro Gold Label E. The G & D strings have a rich tone and the treble strings a sweet tone. The violin leans to the brighter side in tone and will make an excellent instrument for a beginning violinist.
