Information: This antique violin was made in Germany c.1800. It is built in the older style with a through-neck, and ribs lined with linen. The violin contains a repair label from 1891. It has a number of repairs and has been further restored in 2021.


Known as a "small pattern" 4/4 violin (between 4/4 and 7/8 size), this violin is lightweight and well suited to a teenager or smaller adult. The sound is mature yet gentle, with noticeable depth on the lower strings. The balanced mellowness of the tone makes it easy to create a good sound.


If a case or bow is required, we have a selection available in the studio.
