MILLS VIOLANO Virtuoso , Serial Number 751,is in excellent playing condition. This is a 1913 model in a beautiful tiger oak case with a nickel coin slide. An original AC/DC converter runs this variable bow speed machine. It plays with great tone and wonderful expression.

The piano section was restored about 12 years ago. This included a new custom-cut and fitted pinblock, new pins, new strings, new dampers, new hammers and other new action felts. The Piano restoration was done by Jasons Music Center a well-respected piano company, family-owned, since 1937 (See website at jasonsmusic.com). The violin is in great condition with new weight shells and bow wheels. This beauty has been serviced by Dick Hack of Annapolis who tweaked it as recently as March, 2017. I It plays very well. It is in good condition cosmetically. It has been in my collection since 1986.
