German violin from Markneukirchen, approx. 1960

This beautiful German violin which was crafted in the 1960s in the Saxonian capital of instrument-building, Markneukirchen, reflects the best Vogtland artisanry. It is a rare example of handcrafted production from a period in which the former East Germany was in the process of socialising, industrialising and automating the manufacture of musical instruments on a wide scale. The rich coat of orange-brown spirit-oil varnish and the exceptionally good tone woods – a top of moderately-grained spruce and a mildly flamed maple back – which the craftsman chose are of unusually high quality. This is a very well-designed instrument with a bright and warm sound rich in overtones, with great clarity and strength. It has been worked over by our luthiers, and we offer it to you undamaged and without any repairs in very good condition, ready to play.
