Old, c.1920 German violin from Markneukirchen - warm, bright sound

With its highly transparent red-brown varnish applied over golden ground, this old German violin from Saxony appears very dignified and sophisticated. The beautiful arching on the lively flamed one-piece maple back is made close to the Italian original. Even though this German violin was built more than one hundred years ago, it is well preserved - there are only very few traces of use and signs of the inevitable aging process visible. The regularly grown spruce of the top and the neat workmanship indicate the refined taste and profound skills of the maker. This German violin features beautiful sound qualities; it responds immediately and produces warm, matured, balanced and resonant tones full of character.. This German violin is an extraordinary instrument with high potential, especially suitable for advanced players.
