Good quality 1920's Schuster & Co violin, Markneukirchen

This antique German violin, a former school instrument of Bispingen in Germany, was built around 1920, probably in the renowned workshops of the Schuster & Co. company in Markneukirchen, Saxony. It is a high quality example of the quality that instruments by Schuster & Co. have always been famous for. The violin is typical Schuster quality piece and well crafted, with a clearly defined, flat arching, cleanly cut soundholes with characteristical shape, and with a highly appealing, rich spirit oil varnish of a red-brown color. Visible signs from playing and a minor f-wing repair at the left soundhole have no impact on the powerful sound qualities of this good Markneukirchen violin. Our violin makers meticulously worked this antique violin over and made it ready to play - its convincing sound is strong, powerful, precise, of singing character and good resonance.
