Powerful amtique Mittenwald violin, approx. 1830

This excellent historic Mittenwald violin labeled Mathias Neuner was built in the early / mid 19th century around 1830 and it is of the finest tonal quality and good craftsmanship. The unknown luthier selected premium tone woods for which the Mittenwald violin making region is well known: wide to moderately grained Karwendel spruce was used for the one piece top, the one piece back is made of mildly flamed sycamore maple. The violin varnish is of a warm dark orange-brown colour. The violin shows many, expressive traces of use that are fitting for a well-played instrument of its quality and age, and it also has a minor repair to the pegbox which is patched and solid and has no effect on its structural and musical properties. The large, attractive scroll was meticulously crafted on a wide, powerful neck which makes this violin especially suitable for male players with larger hands. Despte many signs from playing this Mittenwald violin has been preserved in very good condition and has no cracks to the body; it was set up by our luthiers and is after a meticulous workover now ready to play. Its voice is powerful and warm, large and resonant, well balanced and strong. Its rapid response allows musicians to play precisely and with focus.
