3/4 - fine and excellent Neuner & Hornsteiner 3/4 violin, Mittenwald, 1889

This fine historic 3/4 violin ranks among the extremely rare fine quality 3/4-sized instruments that was made in the Mittenwald ateliers of Neuner & Hornsteiner. The originally labeled violin is a very typical fine quality Neuner & Hornsteiner piece of work that was meticulously and skillfully crafted by hand in 1889. Its exceptionally good artisanry and the quality of the tone woods used are what make it a true Mittenwald violin that shares all the distinguished hallmarks of its famous provenance, even as a children's instrument. Best quality domestic spruce was chosen for the two piece top and fine Mittenwald sycamore maple for the one piece back; they both show traces of use of the hands of generations of a technically adept and advanced musicians. It is clear that the instrument in otherwise perfectly maintained condition offered generation of young talented players a wide scope of musical options, thanks to its strong, warm, open, clear and somewhat dark resonant sound, characteristic which Mittenwald violins are known for. Besides a meticulously performed worm repair at the middle rib, that involved the opening of the instrument and cleatings, the violin has no crack or damage. This rare 3/4 Mittenwald violin for talents expresses a voice full of character, strong and dominant like a 4/4. Our expert luthiers restored and worked over this antique children´s violin carefully and made it ready to play.
