Good Saxon violin after Jacobus Stainer

The instrument was made in Saxony around 1920. It is a beautiful, hand-crafted violin according to Jacobus Stainer. Therefore, it has the typical characteristics like petite and short F-holes, as well as the archings of the top plate is higher than that of the back. Its 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 thanks to the elaborate reconditioning by our luthier in a very good condition. Visible patina of a 90-year life: the violin has been played often and with pleasure. The orange-red spirit varnish shows traces of playing, as well as significant signs of age (apparently due to dryness). This violin is one of the best sounding violins in the price range.
