This violin has been freshly restored to performance condition. The wear on the violin is honest and the woods aged for 100+ years. The sound of this violin is consistent with that of the quality German violins of the late 1800's era.
The aged Maple and Spruce produce mellow tones unlike the bright sounds produced by most new violins of today. The woods have aged resulting in a deep resonance that is rich in its overall sound. This violin has a very tightly grained spuce top. There are no cracks and no previous repairs have been made to the top or back of this violin. Gear tuners were once installed on this violin leaving the markings and screw holes on the peg box.
The scratch you see on the peg box is just a scratch and not a crack or a repair. The peg box is free from any cracks or repairs.
This violin has some beautiful figured maple to complement the tightly grained spruce top. New fittings have been installed as well as a fresh set of Dominant Strings.
