Markneukirchen violin from the 1930's

This beautiful German violin from the 1930's, a handmade Markneukirchen violin after Stradivari patterns, is of excellent quality and workmanship. The quality tonewoods are well selected. The top is made of regular fine grained spruce, the one piece back of deeply flamed maple. The beautiful soundholes are especially neatly and accurately worked out. The transparent varnish is of an orange brown yellow color of premium quality, with subtle antiqueings bearing hardly any signs of use. The old violin is crackfree and set up with a new bridge, soundpost and new Pirastro strings. This quality Markneukirchen violin is in full and immediate playing condition. The well balanced sound is of great power and strength, having a matured, warm character, the tone opening up into a bright and clear singing tone in the upper registers.
