Neuner & Hornsteiner Mittenwald violin with a slender, delicate body and a slightly shorter scale (32.3 cm)

There can be no doubt about the beauty and sophisticated sound of this antique Neuner & Hornsteiner Mittenwald violin which was handcrafted around 1870. The originally violin was made on a Stradivarius model by the Neuner & Hornsteiner firm that refers back to the Neuner dynasty of violin makers, one of the oldest and most respected families in Mittenwald. This petite violin suits small-handed players and is a typical “Mittenwalder,” made of good quality sound woods from the region: moderately grained spruce was used for the top, and the two-piece back is made of mildly flamed sycamore maple. Clear traces of use, some of which have been touched up can be seen along the red-brown varnish of the instrument, indicating that previous owners clearly enjoyed playing it. We are offering this Neuner & Hornsteiner violin in undamaged condition, ready to play; our luthier worked it over, ready to unfold its beautiful sound. Inlcudes Corilon's trade-guarantee.
