3/4 - Neuner & Hornsteiner, 3/4 violin

This 3/4-sized violin for soloists unmistakably hails from the tradition-rich Bavarian violinmaking town of Mittenwald, where it was made by Neuner & Hornsteiner around 1877. This rare 3/4 violin bears the Neuner & Hornsteiner label and clearly communicates a flawless craftsmanship: confidently accentuated edges, the expressive carving of the scroll and the elegantly crafted two-piece back of mildly flamed maple all reflect the handwork of an experienced violin maker. In light of many scratches and signs from intensive playing to the varnish on the top, this 3/4 violin appears to have been well loved and frequently played because its voice is ideal for soloist performance and competitions. Retouches bear witness to the intense use that this otherwise perfectly preserved instrument has enjoyed. The bright and sweet character and fullness of its warm yet precise and radiant sound is rare amongst 3/4-sized violins. It is ready to play and has been thoroughly set up by the specialists at our studio. We highly recommend it for talented young musicians.
