Violin from Saxony, approx. 1940 - bright, sweet sound

This German violin from Saxony in Germany is a good quality handmade instrument, that was made around 1920 as a piece of well-educated, solid Saxonian craftsmanship. It is an unlabeled instrument that was probably made in the workshop of A. C. Gier in Markneukirchen as is evident in the overall style of workmanship. The medium grained spruce of the top was well chosen, the violin is covered with a glossy and transparent varnish of red-brown color that shows with patina and signs from playing. Like all violins from Corilon violins the violin has been meticulously set up by the experienced luthiers in our atelier and is immediately ready to play. The violin features a beautiful voice that is full of character, warm, bright, somewhat sweet and somewhat mellow in the lower ranges, and of medium power.
