19th century German violin of Saxony, approx. 1870

This excellent sounding antique violin from Saxony is a suitable quality instrument of the 19th century, build around 1870 in the Markneukirchen region. It is an outstanding instrument at the price which is highly motivating to play with its mature and clear, powerful sound, well-balanced across the strings, and with a crisp response and long lasting resonance. Small, elegant soundholes and the transparent, golden-brown varnish that covers the wonderful one-piece maple back maple, ribs and spruce top determine the indeed attractive antique optical appearance. This tonally outstanding German violin at the price has many traces of use, some marks and varnish flaws which are typical for the history of good instruments; this violin is offered completely worked over and crackfree in perfect condition.
