His violins have been characterized to possess the deep sophisticated tone, projection, and ease of play that concert soloists seek.
This violin has a lovely back of one piece of quarter-cut maple. The wood has beautiful and straight medium-narrow flame. The black outlining of the scroll, the delicate carving of the F-holes, and the ivory nut are thoughtful touches that give the instrument individuality. The top is two pieces of spruce with narrow and even grain. The violin is covered with a reddish varnish, with tasteful shading to reveal a pale-golden ground.
The tone is resonant, warm, and colorful - the violin is very playable and adaptable to any style or player. The interior label reads: Jeffre Muller filius Albert fecit Los Angeles anno 2016, alongside a stamp from the maker.
The violin is in excellent condition.
