Very good antique Czech/Bohemian violin, by Müller Schönbach

This recommendable Czech violin by Müller was handmade around 1920 in Schönbach in the region now sometimes called "Musicon Valley," i.e. the Schönbach-Markneukirchen-Klingenthal "Musikwinkel" around the Czech-German border. This originally labaled instrument is a good quality historic piece that was hand-crafted well; its quality and sound place it far beyond compare with other, newer (usually of Chinese origin) instruments in its price range. The transparent yet intense golden-brown varnish with slight signs from use suggest that the violin has been very well taken care of. The instrument has been kept in very good undamaged condition and has been professionally worked over adjusted by our luthier - we offer it in ready to play condition. The violin's balanced and strong high quality sound is warm and mature and radiant in the upper ranges and deserves our special recommendation in the price range.
