Rare baroque violin in unmodified original condition, approx. 1800

This baroque violin was built around the turn of the 18th century, a rare instrument that has never been modified to modern standards and retains its original neck and bassbar - an original baroque violin that is full of character and meets the demands of professional players with its excellent sound. Its unmistakably individual style is expressed by the beautiful scroll, that is rich in details and was carved on a large, quite sturdy pegbox. The beautiful soundholes are clear works of self-confident, premium craftsmanship, just as the fine purfling that was executed with utmost care. The provenance of this appealing antique instrument is not clear, while both the region of southern Germany and England seem to be possible. This rare baroque violin is perfectly set up for early music practice with a baroque bridge, soundpost and the characteristically short fingerboard. This interesting baroque violin has been meticulously restored, it has no soundpost or bassbar cracks and offered ready to play. We recommend this original baroque violin for its warm and bright sound, that is precise, strong and offers great musical options.
