Mittenwald violin with a bright, somewhat gentle sound

This attractive violin is a typical instrument of the Mittenwald violin making tradition, a hand crafted quality piece of premium tone woods from the Karwendel mountains. The violin was made in the mid 20th century and is patterned after a Stradivari model. Medium grained spruce and beautifully flamed sycamore maple were varnished with a rich layer of a luminous orange-brown varnish, a typical choice in Mittenwald. This good instrument is ready to play - solid, top-quality artisanry; it has despite a minor f-wing repair at the right soundhole no cracks and is in outstanding condition, featuring a lovely patina that reflects its advanced age. Its well-balanced sound is bright, open, resonant and somewhat sweet and gentle; this violin is very responsive.
