1/2 - German violin by Neuner & Hornsteiner, Mittenwald

This antique 1/2 violin is a true rarity from the Mittenwald workshops of Neuner & Hornsteiner, where it was carefully crafted approx. 1906. The original label of the renowned company is attached inside, but the flawless quality of the craftsmanship and the impressing tonal qualities give even better evidence of the violin‘s provenance that was built after a typical model with flat arching. The orange-brown varnish with its interesting patina introduces an antique violin, and some even deeper scratches demonstrate, that former owners enjoyed to play it. Crack-free and without any damage, the violin was thoroughly worked over by our luthier and is immediately ready to unfold its exceptionally strong voice that is perfectly suitable for contest performances, with a strong, dark and mature character that is absolutely comparable to larger sized instruments from Mittenwald.
