Antique violin, after Jacobus Stainer
This good sounding antique violin was made in Saxony/Bohemia around 1920. It is a beautiful, hand-crafted violin made after the patterns of Jacobus Stainer: it has typical characteristics, petite and short F-holes and high arching sof the Stainer type. Her sound is rich in overtones, bright and warm with a slightly soft undertone. The violin is ready to be played in an orchestra. It is undamaged, free of cracks and is offered in playing condition. The orange-red spirit varnish is of a younger date, it shows almost no traces of playing. This useful antique violin is one of the best sounding instruments in the price range and its good tone deserves our recommendation.
