Saxonian violin by master luthier Max Heiling

This German master violin is an excellent-quality violin with a magnificent sound; it was created by Max Heiling sometime between 1930 and 1940. The violin reflects the work of a well-trained, experienced master who pursued an individual style whilst successfully crafting a comparatively broad interpretation of the classic Stradivari models with outstanding musical and aesthetic properties. There is a light brown, transparent coat of varnish on the carefully selected premium tone woods which gives the instrument a beautiful history patina and expressive traces of use by good musicians; together they lend the violin an enigmatic character. The appealing fine grain of the spruce top and the tight flames of the two-piece maple back make it clear at a single glance that this is an instrument of the utmost artisanal quality. This musical discovery, which has been kept in top condition, has been carefully set up at our workshop and has an excellent acoustic properties which will win musicians over with its full voice and great volume, blending its perfectly well-rounded profile with radiance and alluring warmth.
