Excellent Markneukirchen violin by C. G. Schuster jun.

The ateliers of Carl Gottlob Schuster, Jr. in Markneukirchen are amongst the most famous workshops in the history of Saxonian instrument making. At the time this Markneukirchen violin was crafted, the C. G. Schuster Jr. company was approaching its 100th anniversary. The premium quality of this fine violin sets benchmarks for the high artisanal standards with which Raimund and Ulrich Schuster ran the family business during this period. The deep flaming of the two-piece maple back is one of the instrument's striking characteristics: it shows how carefully the outstanding tone woods were selected. An Italian sensibility can be seen in the purfling, which was done in Cremonese style, and the thick coat of the soft oil varnish can also be interpreted as a nod to the cradle of European violin making. The extremely appealing aesthetic of the instrument is shaped in large part by its varnish, which is highly transparent and covers a luminous golden-yellow background with an intense orange-brown. The violin features the original C. G. Schuster Jr. label. The perfectly preserved instrument with its low table is an outstanding violin and is compelling not only because of its radiant, timbre-rich sound. It is an exemplary representation of Markneukirchen violin-making art, and after having set it up completely at our atelier for restoration, it is now ready to play.
