Fine historic Neuner & Hornsteiner violin

An ancient Mittenwald instrument of highest quality and timeless beauty, masterfully handmade in the renowned Mittenwald, by Neuner & Hornsteiner. It is a 19th century instrument of rare beauty, made on the Stradivari model with flat archings. Interesting tonewoods from the Karwendel mountain region were used for this fine violin with its remarkably beautiful one-piece spruce top. The warm, honey-toned varnish is patinated and shows several traces of use, and with its high age the violin appears matured and very sophisticated. Some old restoration to pegbox and back seam have no effect whatsoever on the sound or the playing characteristics and are considered in the price. This highly interesting Mittenwald violin features a definitely convincing sound: bright, warm, open, cultivated, precise, somewhat sweet and highly differentiated.
