Antique Klingenthal violin, approx. 1850

This antique Klingenthal violin that was built approx. 1850 is a characteristic example of 19th century instruments from the traditional violin making village of Klingenthal in Saxony. Even simpler violins that were crafted there in this period are famous for their beautiful sound. The glossy light-brown colored varnish is typical for this provenance, too, and determines the antique character of the quality tonewoods that were chosen for this instrument. Both the two-piece back and the ribs were crafted of beautiful, strongly flamed maple, and the top ist of excellent, medium grained spruce. The simple scroll and the carefully worked out archings are expressive carvings full of character, and it introduces the skilled hand of an experienced violin maker, just as the slim and elegantly cut soundholes. The most important feature of his work is, of course, the strong, clear sound of this violin, that is preserved with minr repairs in very good condition. It was worked over completely in our atelier and is ready to play with a new boxwood setup. The powerful sound is bright, crystal, rich in overtones and ringing - highly recommendable for demanding musicians.
