3/4-sized fine Mittenwald violin by J. A. Baader

This ¾-sized violin is an outstanding instrument for talented young musicians: it was made in 1898 at the Mittenwald ateliers of J. A. Baader. The unmistakable style of the expressively carved scroll confidently reflects its heritage from the classic violin-making town at the foot of the Karwendel mountains. For centuries, high-quality tone woods have been harvested there – a veritable natural treasure chest, where an experienced luthier selected deeply-flamed maple for this violin's two-piece back and very evenly-grained spruce for its top. Like the low arch of the body, the purfling very close to the margins of the instrument is the careful work of a steady and well-trained hand. The historic and luminous golden-brownish orange varnish has developed an interesting patina, and its traces of use clearly show that the violin once belonged to good musicians who evidently enjoyed playing it frequently. The minor repair on the outer right sound hole and the small repair at the button are, acoustically speaking, merely signs of old age which have had no impact whatsoever on the sound. Our experienced luthiers have meticulously worked over this otherwise undamaged and finely crafted violin and made it ready to play. It has a winning voice full of warmth and brightness as well as exceptionally precise playing characteristics which open up a wide variety of musical interpretations.
