Has anyone heard of Chalo violin maker


Recommended Posts

As i recall Chaló was a Spaniard who apprenticed with Pressenda whereas Joseph Calot was a pupil of Nicolas Lupot who spent some time working for/with Pressenda in the late 1820s.

The violin on Ebay appears to be a new violin with some dirty antiqueing of the sort that can be bought for €500 in Budapest ...

Dirty antiqueing... dark stain applied with a sponge in 5 minutes. Any soft focus photos I see by companies immediately signal false advertising, even if the price is considerably lower than this.
