Old German violin, circa 1940, with a beautiful sound

This old German student violin is a straightforward instrument that convinces with its beautiful sound and good playing properties and its visual aesthetic. It is an instrument from the German violin making town Markneukirchen, where it may have been built in the 1940's, a typical example of manufactured violins that are completely crafted by hand. The model is designed after well-proven Stradivari patterns. The violin has been well played and is preserved with minor varnish flaws in crackfree condition. We offer this surprisingly good sounding instrument ready to play after a complete work-over in our workshop, ready to unfold its warm, balanced sound, that features good resonance and is much better than the sound of new violins in the same price range from Chinese or Eastern European factory production.
