18th century Markneukirchen violin, approx. 1780

A few instruments have survived from the period before the Stradivari violin model became the prevailing template for luthiers. These historic pieces have styles that are strikingly individual, and in many cases they also have exceptionally good acoustic properties. This fine Markneukirchen violin was made late in the 18th century around the year 1780, and its unique nature is apparent at a glance, given the broad yet elegant shape of the body and the elegant silhouette and archings. The small scroll, which was grafted onto the peg box, has an unusually expressive character. The bee sting of the purfling serves as further confirmation of the craftsman quality with which this rare beauty of an instrument was made. A thin coat of luminous golden-brown varnish complements the historical aesthetic of the tone woods' interesting grain by giving it a gentle lustre. With some restoration to top and ribs that are considered in the low price, this 18th cebntury Markneukirchen violin is good condition and offered ready to play, after having been reviewed and set up in our atelier for restoration. This fine master violins mature sound is large and resonant, warm, strong and with the matured, aged note which distinguishes very old violins.
