"Maggini violin" with ornate purfling made in the 1880s in Schonbach / Bohemia. This beautiful Czech violin that features a superior sound in the price range also has a highly appealing visual aesthetic. Well chosen regional tonewoods determine its appearance of the violin: premium medium grained spruce that was used for the top, and maple with broad and wide flaming for the one-piece back. Antique light-brown varnish over a golden-yellow ground with expertly made antiqueings covers the violin with medium arch, that features a delicate scroll and well-cut soundholes made in the style of Maggini. When played, this affordable antique violin reveals its exceptionally good sound and powerful voice, with a bright, warm and open, mature character, with a somewhat sweet note. We highly recommend this "Maggini violin", that is offered with some repairs in good playable condition, ready to play.
