Beautiful Vintage Concert Violin, Formely Played By A Professional Violinist For Sale
old beautiful Czech or German violin. It is not labelled, BUT it’s a
vintage concert level instrument of a superb build, wonderful material, and
equally good tone.
nice work; scroll and sound holes skilfully carved, purfling precisely
inlaid, all the four corners blocked; quality light varnish expertly
wonderful spruce top of a dense structure; broadly flamed back, ribs &
brilliant with attractive overtones rounding the tone, nicely balanced
across the strings; excellent projection.
used to be professionally played in
‘Bohuslav Martinů Philharmonic Orchestra’ (Zlín, Moravia) – another indication
of its qualities.
instrument is in anexcellent condition for its age. I cannot
see any cracks in it (neither open, nor repaired). The wear & tear is only
slight – some minor scratches, blemishes; the instrument is excellently
preserved overall. The fittings are in a good shape too; the bridge seems to
have been fitted relatively recently.

Some notes on packaging: I do the following steps (nearly
always) to eliminate the danger of the damage to the instrument during the transport
to the minimum: I put the bridge down, then unscrew the screws of the fine
tuners and put them, together with the bridge, to the "rosin pocket"
of the violin case. Related note: There is always some (not too big)
possibility that the sound post inside the violin body would loosen during the
transport. If this happens, it’s necessary to go to a luthier and ask him to
put the sound post up again. It's a trivial and usually cheap act; the
important thing is that the sound post has been expertly fitted in most cases,
so there is no need to shorten it (etc.) again. Please understand that I do the
described procedure to make the delivery of the instrument to customers as safe
as possible (unfortunately there is no option to send the parcels abroad as "fragile").
If you wish me NOT to take those protecting measures for some reason, please
let me know in time!
