Interesting fine old 4/4 violin around late 1800 / early 1900s. Please listen to the video/soundfile & scroll down to see all detailed XXL photos below as part of the description! This violin shows closed lines on the lower left top, but n o open cracks or open seams, and surely some marks due to its age in it´s old amber varnish. The table is finely grained spruce and 2-piece back - as well as ribs and neck - is maple.
The edges of the corners and the scroll have been smoothed / rounded. The violin has been checked by our luthier and by our violin player on playability.In our workshop it received new setup with newly fitted elder ebony pegs, tailpiece & chinrest, 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!
