German Violin, Stradivarius copy, probably Meinel & Herold
This good sounding German violin was probably made in the Meinel & Herold ateliers, it is a very typical Meinel & Herold fullsize instrument that was manufactured around 1940 in the famous Klingenthal region of Germany. This attractive Markneukirchen violin is a copy of Antonius Sradivarius as indcated on the label. A rich and glossy golden-brown oil varnish over a golden yellow ground covers beautiful tonewoods: the top is made of medium grained spruce, the two piece back of mildly flamed maple. This attractive Meinel & Herold violin is well preserved, undamaged and crackfree and is offered in immediate playing condition after a complete work-over by our luthiers. This old violin projects well and has a recommendable, large sound suitable for orchestra playing. Her warm sound is well balanced with a somewhat mellow character.
