Brilliant sound: old Markneukirchen violin after Amati
This old quality violin was built by an unknown violin maker in Markneukirchen (Saxony) in approx. 1920. It features medium high archings and was designed after classical patterns of Amati - a convincing instrument due to its good standards of craftsmanship, excellent tonewoods and indeed very useful sound qualities. The regular medium grained spruce top and the deep flames of the one-piece maple back introduce premium woods that were used in the Vogtland region in Saxony, with a beautiful grain that is decorated by the transparent light brown varnish. The tastefully crafted edges and the archings are the clear works of an experienced workshop. Our luthiers completely worked over this instrument that is undamaged and in very good condition. We made it ready to play, so its clear, brilliant sound can express its open voice that is rich in overtones.
