3/4 - Powerful sounding old 3/4 violin from Mittenwald - for soloists

This outstanding old 3/4 violin has a powerful voice suitable for soloists, an outstanding instrument that was built in the 1900's in the Bavarian violin making town of Mittenwald. This excellent old 3/4 violin is preserved crackfree, with only a minor repair to the button that is considered in the price in very good condition. The light colored orange-brown varnish is almost flawless and covers exceptionally beautiful tonewoods that were carefully chosen by an experienced craftsman: the spruce of the top features very regular grain, and the interesting fine flames of the sycamore maple are underlined by the one-piece construction of the back. The carving of the scroll is full of character and determines with the small ff-holes and neat edgework the elegant appearance of this old 3/4 violin. Our experienced luthiers thoroughly worked over this instrument and made it ready to play with its powerful ringing sound, that features a dark, clear, warm character.
