7/8 - Powerful modern Markneukirchen 7/8 violin, approx. 1970

This fine quality handmade German 7/8 violin from Markneukirchen/Saxony was made around 1970 by a clearly experienced violin maker in post-manufacture times (i.e. after the breakdown of industrial violin making in Markneukirchen) who adhered to the excellent craftsman traditions of Markneukirchen. A full-blooded Markneukirchen quality instrument - The top is of medium to fine grained spruce and the two-piece back of fdeeply flamed maple – very good and visually appealing tone woods, and their selection and craftsmanship indicate great expertise in the field. The quality of the luminously radiant orange-brown Markneukirchen varnish is noteworthy. This old German Stradivari model is nearly 50 years old and is undamaged in perfectly maintained, like-new condition. Its exceptionally good, bright and clear sound combines precision, brilliance and resonance full of overtones and strength.
