Please see the video & listen to the sound on youtube! Please listen to this video with headphones for best result.An excellent old German master violin by Ernst Martin around early 1900s. Please listen to the video/soundfile & scroll down to see all detailed XXL photos below as part of the description! Originally labeled and stamped on the upper back. Nicely carved scroll and accurately inlaid purfling. T his beautiful violin shows a repaired line on the lower left front, but 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. Pegs, fingerboard, tailpiece and chinrest are ebony. Like always the instrument has been completely checked by our luthier and our violin player on playability. In our workshop it received new ebony pegs, new ebony chinest, a new bridge, new soundpost 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! Very good old German master violin in immediate playing condition!
