Powerful antique violin from Saxony, after J. Stainer

This antique violin is an especially attractive instrument with a strong, powerful sound, that was built after the classical model of Jacobus Stainer, a pattern that influenced violin making in Saxony for many generations. It was built approx. 1900 in this region by an unknown hand. The violin is a clearly shaped Stainer instrument, with a narrow waist and archings towards the upper and lower bouts. A one piece back with tastefully crafted edges and corners and the purfling let close to the edge demonstrate the flawless skills of the violin maker. He applied a highly antiqued red-brown colored varnish that perfectly completes the antique appearance of the violin, that is preserved crack-free and in very good condition. Our luthiers spent time and effort to work it over and made it ready to play with new ebony pegs, bridge, soundpost and strings. This good instruments recommends itself with its strong, clear sound that bears bright character, power and resonance and is well-balanced across the strings.
