This viola features a clear, open sound with a sweet and lyrical upper register. It is finished with light brown varnish and an elegant one-piece back.

Many poorer quality factory-made instruments were given the label 'Collin-Mezin', however the Lutherie Artistique marque was used for factory-made instruments that were hand finished and of a higher grade.
