An unusually good Collin-Mézin from 1898, this violin belonged to Jim Devlin, a well-loved player on the Scottish/Irish scene until his death in 1989. Violins by Collin-Mézin Senior are very sought after, partly because they represent the best in Mirecourt workmanship, partly because they can be very successful tonally. Here’s some more information about Jim Devlin, including a link to some recordings in the British Library:
