Since 1858, the Mittenwald violin making school has taught its students the art of crafting instruments, and over the years countless masters have emerged from its ranks. This luminously reddish-brown Mittenwald violin labeled "Joh. Schandl Stuttgart" is a good quality and meticulously handmade Mittenwald instrument with its craftsmanship and the outstanding quality of its sound. It is actually the work of a Mittenwald craftsman who made it in the 1930s for the Joh Schanld Stuttgart company, and it has been frequently played and remained - except some varnish mark - in unusually good condition since. The expertise which went into crafting this premium violin is evident in the soft arch of the body, the finely carved soundholes and accurately executed edgework. The coat of dark brown spirit-oil varnish is despite some signs of playing in excellent condition. This Joh. Schandl violin was made of the finest Mittenwald tone woods and has a powerful, clear, warm, large sound — darker in the lower registers, and bright, sweet and open in the upper registers. Crackfree, with a minor pegbox patch perfectly preserved and completely worked over by our luthiers and offered ready to play.
