Oil varnished violin by Ernst Martin (sold)

This violin is an especially beautiful master violin made by Ernst Martin. The instrument was master made around 1910 in Markneukirchen. The model is after Amati. The violin is labeled with the original label and an additional brandstamp with his monogram E.M. on the back below the button (as a sign of quality, as most E. Martin violins do not carry that brandstamp). The varnish is a rich oil varnish of a deep dark red color, in excellent condition. The violin is in perfect basically crackfree condition and can be played immediately. It has been checked and set up by our luthier and is equipped with a new bridge, soundpost and Pirastro strings. The sound is clear, very powerful, dark, mature and exceptionally powerful in the highest positions.
