Antique Klingenthal violin, approx. 1850

Violins from Klingenthal in Saxony are famous among musicians for their beautiful, rich sound – nevertheless, these instruments are traded at ridiculous low rates, compared to their outstanding musical qualities. Antique 19th century violins from Klingenthal are great opportunities to purchase a fascinating instrument, just as this old violin, that was built approx. 1850 and meets straightforward standards in craftsmanship. The two-piece maple back is solid work, the transarent golden-brown varnish is of less spectacular quality – but what a difference the warm, matured sound of this perfectly preserved violin makes! The powerful resonance and the fluid, flute-like character satisfy serious demands. This very interesting instrument from Saxony was thoroughly worked over by our experienced luthier and invites the player to explore its wide tonal opportunities.
