German violin after Jacobus Stainer, circa 1930

This high quality "Jacobus Stainer violin" from the Markneukirchen in Saxony was built approx. 1930 after the model of Jacobus Stainer, a style that was very popular among the Vogtland violin makers of this time. Many workshops crafted quality Jakob Stainer violins, and this instrument clearly is the work of an experienced maker with a sharp eye, who knew the secrets and characteristics of the Jacobus Stainer pattern. Antiqueings decorate the instrument. The soundholes bear the characteristic Stainer shape, and the typical arching is perfectly crafted. The two-piece maple back of this violin is made of attractive maple, and the top is made of quality medium grained spruce. The small, delicate scroll and the accurate quality purfling determine the nice appearance of the "Jacobus Stainer violin". It is perfeclty preserved and was worked over thoroughly by our luthier, to unfold its light and clear sound, that is rich in overtones, with good resonance and some sweet notes - very powerful and with an excellent response.
