German quality violin, Mittenwald style

The Mittenwald tradition of violin making is an important school of craftsmanship in Europe, influential far beyond the borders of its region in Southern Germany. The violin offered here is a good example of these artistic echoes, that was built approx. 1940 in the Mittenwald style, but most presumably in a workshop in Mid Germany. Due to its good sound properties it is a highly recommendable partner for orchestral use. The Stradivarius model with low ribs and flatly crafted archings is tastefully completed by the small scroll. Beautiful varnish of shining red color over a golden ground covers the widely grained spruce of the top and the two-piece maple back. Our experienced luthier meticulously worked over this instrument, that is perfectly preserved and ready to play. It unfolds a warm and clear sound, with bright character.
