Antique German violin, 1920's, Markneukirchen

This old German violin, built in the 1920's, is a beautiful instrument with minor traces of use and indeed good sound qualities at the price. The violin was handmade in Markneukirchen/Saxony. The top is made of medium grained spruce, the two piece back of mildly flamed maple: quality tonewoods, adorned with the interesting play of colors produced by a transparent orange-brown varnish over a luminous yellow ground. Typical traces of use show that this good German handmade violin has been played often and with pleasure. Offered in perfect condition without any damage, this handmade German 1920's violin has been worked over by our professional luthiers and received a new setup and tone optimization and is offered ready to play, offering a warm, mature, strong, clear tone.
