Its exceptionally good artisanry and the quality of the tone woods used are what make it a true strong sounding Mittenwald violin that shares all the distinguished hallmarks of its famous provenance, even as a children's instrument. Best quality domestic spruce was chosen for the two piece top and fine Mittenwald sycamore maple for the two piece back; they both show traces of use of the hands of generations of a technically adept and advanced musicians. It is clear that the instrument in otherwise good maintained condition offered generation of young talented players a wide scope of musical options, thanks to its strong, warm, open, clear and somewhat dark resonant sound, characteristic which Mittenwald violins are known for.
