Markneukirchen violin, "Künstler-Violine Nr. 18" by Meinel & Herold

This German violin was built approx. 1930 and is recommendable for orchestral use due to its very good sound properties. The relatively wide model "Artist violin" (Künstlervioline) is patterned after Stradivarius, a typical top tier design of the renowned Markneukirchen workshops of Meinel & Herold. Spruce with medium, regular grain was chosen for the top, flamed maple for the two-piece back. The dark, red-brown varnish is very transparent and underlines the beautiful premium tonewoods. With minor traces of use as they are common for old and often played instruments this violin is preserved in undamaged condition. It was like all Corilon instruments worked over completely by our expert luthiers and is offered ready to play. The well-balanced sound of this beautiful violin is powerful and mature, a dark and warm voice that is strong and loud - recommended.
