Old German viola, Markneukirchen, approx. 1960

This good quality German viola is an older instrument from Germany, that was thoroughly crafted in the 1960's, most presumably in the Saxonian violin making town of Markneukirchen. The precisely cut ff-holes and the deep flaming of the two-piece maple back determine the appearance of this quality handmade instrument, that is completed by the warm note of the golden-brown colored spirit-oil varnish. The viola is preserved in very good crackfree condition, with minor varnish flaws that indicate intensive use by its former owners. Our experienced luthiers completely checked the instrument which is like all Corilon instruments offered ready to play. Its sound is convincingly warm, resonant, well-balanced and clear, with an interesting dark note.
