Please listen to the video/soundfile & scroll down to see all detailed XXL photos below as part of the description! Born in Markneukirchen, the Saxonian centre of violin making, Max König studied under Richard Mönning before wandering through Europe for 16 years, working with prominent masters in Germany, England, Ireland and Switzerland. It was in Munich that he ultimately made an excellent name for himself as a restorer, and historically he is mentioned in the same breath as the great Giuseppe Fiorini. Nicely carved scroll and accurately inlaid purfling. T his beautiful violin shows no open cracks or open seams. The table is finely grained spruce and the 1-piece back, as well as ribs and neck, is nicely flamed maple. Like always the instrument has been completely checked by our luthier and by our violin player on playability. In our workshop it received new setup with ebony pegs, ebony tailpiece, new ebony chinrest, a new bridge and new strings. These are new German silver wound steel core strings with good projection, easy to play while allowing rapid finger performance. We use these strings on mostly all of our violins to provide a comparison of the tonal qualities of each instrument in the videos. In any case a new owner should consider higher quality strings of own personal preference to enhance the full character of this violin!

Total 59,5 cm / 23.4", body 36 cm / 14.17", vibrating chord length 32,5 cm / 12.8, weight 492 gr / 17.3 oz.
