Antique German violin, 1920's, Markneukirchen
This old German violin, built in the 1920's, is a beautiful instrument with expressive traces of use and indeed good sound qualities at the price. The violin was handmade in Markneukirchen/Saxony. A repair to the upper rib allows us to offer this fully worked over violin at a reduced price - ready to play. The top is made of medium grained spruce, the two piece back of mildly flamed maple: quality tonewoods, adorned with the interesting play of colors produced by a transparent orange-brown varnish over a luminous yellow ground. Typical traces of use show that this excellent German violin has been played often and with pleasure. Without any additional or damage, it has been worked over by our luthiers and is offered ready to play, offering a very clear, brilliant sound, rich in overtones.
