Antique German Saxon violin by Schuster & Co. Markneukirchen approx. 1910

An especially beautiful antique German violin with a strong sound which is quite recommended for American fiddle music, Irish folk / traditional and jazz. The instrument is a good German Saxon piece of quality that features doubled inlaid purfling. The violin was handmade around 1910 in Markneukirchen-Saxony by Schuster & Co., it bears the original label. With its bodylength of back of 36.1 cm this instrument is well suitable for large players. The antiqued varnish bears many traces of use, a light-brown color over a yellow ground, with some patination and signs from playing. Having no cracks or repairs, this antique Schster & Co. violin is perfectly preserved. Like all instruments from us, the violin has been worked over and set up by our luthiers and is set up with a new bridge, soundpost, new ebony pegs, fittings and new Pirastro strings. The sound sound is notably strong, clear in character, resonant and well-balanced over the strings yet with good clarity and brilliance in the upper ranges.
