3/4 - Old German violin after Jacobus Stainer, clear strong tone

This old German 3/4 violin was crafted approx. 1920 in an unknown workshop in Saxony, after the traditional patterns of Jacobus Stainer. The top and the back feature the typical, medium high arching with strong flutings. Medium grained spruce was chosen for the top, a charming contrast with the tender purfling. The scroll, which has an old, solid repair, is nicely carved and expresses an unmistakable style. Goden-brown varnish was applied over a light ground that is typical for this region of violin making. Some scratches and signs from playing determines the antique appearance of the violin, and introduce a 3/4 violin with a very good, strong sound that was always a pleasure to play. A solid repair to the scroll is only flaw of this instrument that is well preserved after almost 100 years. Its recommendably strong sound is large and rich in volume, with a warm but rather bright character. This typical "Stainer violin" from Saxony was worked over completely in our workshop and is offered in immediate playing condition.
