3/4 - old German 3/4 violin, for young soloists

This very good children's violin is a quite recommendable 3/4 violin from Markneukirchen in the classical violin making region in Saxony and Bohemia, that was built approx. 1940 in an unknown workshop and features an exceptionally strong soloist sound - mature, clear, brilliant, rich in overtones. The top was made of beautiful, medium grained spruce covered with a transparent golden-brown varnish that determines the appearance of the violin. The one piece back is made of deeply flamed maple, the 3/4 violin was built after a Stradivarius model. An instrument full of power, that features an oustanding bright, warm, resonant and precise sound - strong as the voice of a 4/4 sized violin. Our professional luthiers completely worked over this 3/4 violin, a highly recommendable partner for advanced young players or grown-ups with very small hands.
