Information: This vintage 4/4 size violin was made in Markneukirchen, Germany c.1961 and contains a label stating "Geigenbaumeister Gerhard Reinel in Meisterwerkstatten 'Musima' / Copy Stradivarius".
An ideal violin for an upper primary student or a teenager looking to upgrade to their first 4/4 instrument. It is slightly smaller than average, measuring 353mm across the back to the neck button. It also has a slightly wider than average neck, promoting a comfortable open hand position.
This violin makes it easy to create a good sound. It is extremely resonant with noticeable depth. The playability is buttery smooth. Very good condition with an attractive mild craquelure effect to the varnish.
If a case or bow is required, we have a selection of new and secondhand items available in the studio.
