7/8 - "Lady's violin", 7/8 violin, by Schuster & Co., c.1910

This antique 7/8 violin is a quality instrument from the renowned Schuster & Co. workshops in Markneukirchen, Saxony. Despite its smaller size this violin features the typical, preferably strong sound that Schuster & Co. is famous for. The provenance of the instrument is proved by the original label inside the body, that bears some traces of use as they are common for the age of this crackfree, with only a repair to the reight lower corner excellently preserved violin. The golden-brown colored varnish is very transparent and shows the fine grains of the quality tonewoods that were chosen for this violin: medium grained spruce was used to craft the table, and the two-piece back is made of narrowly flamed sycamore maple. The ff-holes are full of character and complete the nice appearance of the 7/8 violin, that was designed after a proven Stradivari model. We offer this antique instrument in immediate playing condition after a complete work-over by our expert luthiers, with a special recommendation for its bright, clear and open sound, that is strong and rich in overtones.
