Seeking maker info

Recommended Posts

Perhaps some Maestronet member has come across the luthier name, Renato Conni. His label is, in part, French, stating "fait par. . . ". A pretty thorough Google search has not turned up a single word on Conni. Tarisio has no records on him. The violin, however, is a good one, with an open and resonant tone, made in 1962. I can get it for a very reasonable price. Of course, if it sounds good, it doesn't matter who made it, but it's nice to know at least a bit about the maker, whenever possible. Apparently, the surname, Conni, is a rare one.

Thanks for your help.

This Website says it is a brand name of René CUNE and they range it among the "quite rare" brands, though not uncommon. Sorry, they don't give any accurate info as far as years, quality, etc. are concerned. I can't tell either whether it is a factory or a workshop violin.

Hope this helps,

Marc
