German student violin, Bubenreuth
This German student violin was made in the 1950s, probably in the Franconian town of Bubenreuth, and is a good and well-built instrument. It is sturdy and designed to meet straightforward standards for everyday use. At the same time it is surprising with its exceptionally finely crafted purfling that extends well into the corners. The instrument labeled "copy of Stradivarius" was patterned after a popular and tried-and-true Stradivari model and has an orange-brown varnish and a top made of good moderately-grained spruce. The violin has only few traces of use, and we offer it after a complete work-over and in ready-to-play condition. Its sound is very well suited to orchestral playing and has a bright, warm and mature character.
