Aubert Lutherie "Nicolas" AL6500 Violin
The “Jean-Francois Nicolas” is a newer model and uses an oil-based clear brown varnish, unique for the Aubert Lutherie, to impart a more mature, antique character. With highly-select maple and spruce, each violin is handmade in the classic French tradition to produce a broad, rich tone with power and clarity. The response is even and balanced throughout the registers, with a variety of tonal layers present in the wider dynamic ranges.
Each instrument has been adjusted by the maker using fine ebony fittings, a beautifully cut and fitted Aubert Deluxe bridge, and a set of Corelli Alliance Vivace strings. Additionally, each instrument comes with a Maker’s Certificate.
The Aubert Story
The legendary name “Aubert" is recognized by every luthier and repairperson, and represents a tradition of excellence for quality French bridges. Since 1864, Aubert has earned this reputation based on their expertise in wood selection, careful aging process, and precise workmanship. This has been the same foundation for the Aubert Lutherie, a small group of French violin- makers in Mirecourt that joined Aubert in the 1980s, who use only the finest European tonewoods to craft instruments worthy of professional musicians throughout the world.
