Fiumebianca was a highly successful violin making boutique based in Tokyo, Japan. It focused on building higher grade string instruments and was particularly active during the 1970s-1990s decades. While the Fiumebianca brand may not be widely known in the United States, their instruments are highly regarded among violin lovers in Japan.

The Andrea was the intermediate-to-advanced model in Fiumebianca's line-up during the 1980s. Targeting serious students, the Andrea was built with expert craftmanship and precision. It terms of its grade, it was approximately comparable to the Suzuki 520 and Yamaha V7-V10 models.

This instrument is characterized by the very good balance and projection, rich resonance, and medium warm tone. It is in excellent, play-ready condition. There are no cracks, repairs or any other structural defects. It is also in excellent shape cosmetically.

The violin comes with a full set of accessories. If you prefer a different accessory set, please inquire – I will work with you to meet your needs.

Included accessories:

- 1990s violin case by GEWA made in Germany. The case is oldish but fully functional. At just 3.1 lb, it is feather-light yet reliably strong. Gewa is recognized as one of the world's leading maker of premium and luxury violin cases.
- Brand new carbon fiber bow by Artino (ebony frog decorated with Parisian eye and full nickel-silver mount; mother of pearl slide; three-piece button with a m-o-p eye; natural white horsehair).
- KUN shoulder rest (used).
- Brand new rosin.
