3/4 - Czech 3/4 violin, Jan Podesva, outstanding tone

While beholding the absolutely remarkable state of preservation of this beautiful Czech 3/4 violin, it is hard to believe the instrument was made over eighty years ago. This 3/4 violin is a classical instrument with an unmistakable Czech provenance: it was handcrafted around the year 1930 in the Jan Podesva workshop in Brno. The golden brown varnish with tasteful antique touches bear some older varnish damage spots on top and mild traces from playing that underline the antique appearance of this beautiful 3/4 violin. The sound of the marvelous instrument is outstandingly warm, strong and clear. As is the case with all of our instruments, this Czech 3/4 violin was also completely set up by the luthiers at our restoration atelier and made ready to play. With its high tonal qualities this Jan Podesva 3/4 violin is especially suitable for ambitioned young players.
