1930's Carlo Alberi, Imported by B&J
With a name like Alberi, you would think this was a violin made in Italy. Hmmm, I wonder why it looks nearly identical to the Made in Nippon fiddle listed below. Probably the same reason many modern instruments have brand names that don't exactly match with their country of origin. Still, I have always liked the better Japanese made fiddles. Always a good even tone and very respectable craftsmanship. This one is $700 and includes a featherweight case. Stock Number P41.
