Giuseppe (Joseph) Rocca Turin in 1853.
A lyrical instrument : a real voice with warm and precise bass, present and pleasant mids with the sound as the tannins of a great burgundy supporting its aromas, and crowned by a shimmering high register and singing.
The instrument bears a label of Turin in 1853 and an iron mark in this table with great discretion the footsteps of his age. A fingerboard replaced, an original head, the instrument is particularly beautiful, attractive and alluring. As for its sound, harmony with its original bar: it sings! Its rich and homogeneous harmonic fill the sound space and mark its presence. VERY RARE INSTRUMENT !
