Virtuoso sound from Markneukirchen

This very beautiful violin was built most probably by a master in violin making in the 1920ies in Markneukirchen, where, at the origin of the so-called „Musikwinkel“ in the Saxon Vogtland, violins are made since the 17th Century. The former ownership of a very good violinist is proven by game traces at higher timbres on the top. This points to its excellent sound. It is mature, in fact, accurate, powerful, and carrying, while bright and singing, very resonant and ringing. This absolute high-quality instrument has a one-piece, flamed maple back and a warm, orange-brown color in oil-spirit-varnishing. It is completely undamaged.
