Gorgeous Old Markneukirchen c. 1890’s – SOLD 1/15/2019
This violin features beautiful patina, nice lines in the arching and its shape, and a two-piece maple back with medium to wide width flame. The neck and scroll were grafted long before we received the violin. There are signs of bridge placement wear and natural wear from playing. This wear is ok because it tells us the violin was a player.
Yes, the sound on this violin is tremendous. It has a lush bass end and does not disappoint all the way up into 6th and 7th position. The treble side also puts out and will have you not put this violin down. In short, Mr. Judd calls this a winner. Players looking in the $2500 – $2900 range need to try this one.
