This well played and tonally much recommendable Mittenwald violin, a Guarnerius model probably made by J.A. Baader ranks amongst the best sounding instruments of its price range in our catalogue and has an outstanding, bright and sweet radiant sound that is immediately satisfying. Characterizing features indicate the instrument's heritage from the esteemed atelier of J. A. Baader, who operated one of the most important Bavarian workshops of the period (other than Neuner & Hornsteiner). In its unmistakable traditional Mittenwald style, this J.A. Baader violin has an light-brown varnish with a patina and some traces of use by experienced musicians, giving it a beautiful historic look. The violin was made of quality tone woods from the Karwendel mountains: the top was made of spruce "moon wood," i.e. wood felled at a particular phase of the moon in keeping with an old forest tradition. The back is made of mildly flamed maple. The luthiers in our workshop paid great attention to this violin and spared no expense in working it completely over, and its outstanding musical qualities are worth all of their efforts. It is crackfree and ready to play and has a powerful and mature sweet voice that is precise, warm, clear, rich, bright and sweet in the upper ranges and full of resonance.
