Albert August Heberlein jun., Markneukirchen violin

A master violin which honours the traditions of Markneukirchen design, this violin was created by Albert August Heberlein jun., a highly acclaimed member of this leading dynasty of Saxonian luthiers. The original label in its body is dated 1921 and confirms the instrument’s provenance from an outstanding atelier. Heberlein chose the finest tone woods: very evenly-grained spruce for the top and elegantly flamed maple for the two-piece back, the grain of which is tastefully accentuated with a luminous orange-brown varnish. This model features a flat table, and its entire construction reflects the work of a well trained and experienced hand, as do details such as the meticulous carving of the scroll. Its master crafted a violin with a highly recommended sound that is large and powerful. After having been set up and made ready to play by the specialists at our studio for restoration, the instrument is compelling with a crisp response and voice with a character that is as bright as it is clear.
