3/4 - German 3/4 violin after A. Stradivari

This recommendable 3/4 violin was built after the patterns of Antonio Stradivari and is an especially beautiful 3/4 instrument from Germany. The violin is a very typical example for the Markneukirchen tradition of violin making: Its accentuated edges, the characteristically shaped archings and the design of the scroll clearly show its provenance. The well-chosen tonewoods are covered by beautiful varnish of red-brown color; the deeply flamed sycamore maple of the two-piece back is especially worth to be mentioned. Antique touches were done with excellent success and match perfectly to the patina, that completes the attractive appearance of the 3/4 violin. The instrument is perfectly preserved and was made ready to play by our luthier, who professionally worked it over. We recommend this 3/4 violin for its convincing sound, that is warm, voluminous, open and precise, with a somewhat mellow undertone.
