An 2019 exposition violin by David Leonard Wiedmer, Lyon, France, based on a middle period Guarneri Del Gesu model. LOB 352mm Powerfully punchy, warm, ample, even with a strong core capable of tone modulation. A successful instrument built on a smaller model that sounds like an instrument built on a larger pattern.
