Good quality 1920's Schuster & Co violin, Markneukirchen

This antique German violin was built around 1920, probably in the renowned workshops of the Schuster & Co. company in Markneukirchen, Saxony. It is a good example of the quality that instruments by Schuster & Co. have always been famous for. This unlabeled violin is typical Schuster & Co. piece of work and well crafted, with a clearly defined, flat arching, cleanly cut soundholes with characteristical shape, and with a highly appealing, antiqued varnish of a light-brown color. Visible signs from playing have no impact on the powerful sound qualities of this good Markneukirchen violin. Our violin makers meticulously worked this undamaged antique violin over and made it ready to play - its convincing sound is strong, powerful, warm, precise, of singing character and good resonance.
