This beautiful Markneukirchen violin which was crafted in the 1930s in the Saxonian "capital" of violin-making, Markneukirchen, reflects the best Vogtland artisanry. It is a rare example of handcrafted production from a period before the later East Germany was in the process of socialising, industrialising and automating the manufacture of musical instruments on a wide scale. The rich coat of orange-brown spirit-oil varnish and the exceptionally good tone woods – a top of moderately-grained spruce and a deeply flamed maple back – which the maker chose are of unusually high quality. The violin offered here is a very well-designed Markneukirchen violin which likely comes from a small master workshop that features a bright and warm sound, rich in overtones, with resonance and a colorful tone that has some beauty in it. The fiddle has been worked over by our luthiers, and we offer it to you with a completely undamaged body, with some signs from playing and without any cracks in very good condition, ready to play.
