Antique German Maggini violin, probably Schuster & Co. Markneukirchen - suitable for fiddle, folk & Irish traditional

An especially beautiful antique German violin with a large, voluminous sound which is quite recommended for American fiddle music, Irish folk / traditional and jazz. The instrument is a good German Saxon piece of work after G.P. Maggini - a tall, extended model with doubled inlaid purfling. The violin was handmade around 1900 in Markneukirchen-Saxony probably by Schuster & Co., it bears the G.P. aggini model label. With its bodylength of back of 36.9 cm this instrument is well suitable for large players. The soft varnish is an oil varnish of an intense darkred color over a yellow ground, with some patination and signs from playing. Having only minor ptical plays, this antique instrument is perfectly preserved, completely undamaged and crackfree. Like all instruments from us, this "German Maggini" violin has been worked over and set up by our luthiers and is set up with a new bridge, soundpost, new ebony pegs, fittings and new Pirastro strings. The warm sound is notably large and rounded, rich and mellow, resonant and well-balanced over the strings yet with good clarity and brilliance in the upper ranges.
