Antique Markneukirchen violin, Schuster & Co., after Jacobus Stainer

This dark red varnished antique Markneukirchen violin is an attractive instrument with many traces of history that has a strong, powerful sound, it was built after the classical model of Jacobus Stainer, a pattern that influenced violin making in Saxony for many generations. It was built in 1914 by Schuster & Co. and bears the original label. The violin is a clearly shaped Stainer instrument, with a narrow waist and archings towards the upper and lower bouts. A two piece back with tastefully crafted edges and corners and the purfling let close to the edge demonstrate the flawless skills of the violin maker. He applied a dark red-brown colored varnish that perfectly completes the antique appearance of the violin, the surface shows many marks and scuffs but the instrument is preserved crack-free and in very good condition. Our luthiers spent time and effort to work it over and made it ready to play with new ebony pegs, bridge, soundpost and strings. This good instruments recommends itself with its strong, clear sound that bears bright character, power and resonance and is well-balanced across the strings.
