German Violin by Braun & Hauser München. Approximately 1900

Preserved in good condition, this old German violin is a solid example of the Mittenwald violin-making tradition, and its stands out not only due to its elegant appearance but because of its bright, clear, warm sound. It ranks amongst the instruments which the highly-esteemed Munich atelier of Braun & Hauser commissioned from carefully chosen ateliers in Mittenwald and then fit with its own label. A mildly-flamed maple of great beauty and high quality was selected for the two-piece back, whereas the top is of premium moderately-grained spruce. The instrument was patterned after a classic Stradivarius design, and the purfling reflects the work of a well-trained and steady hand. A good player left meaningful traces from intensive playing to the orange-brown varnish. This lovely German violin is a quality instrument that remains with just a short repair to the left soundhole (1.5 cm in length) in good condition, and it was made ready to play in our restoration atelier. Its resonant sound is compelling, with a bright and clear character. Please note that the sound sample is played with much vibrato.
