Vintage Czech Violin Labeled "benjamin Patocka... 1896" + Bow Stamped "tubbs":
Old Bohemian violin labeled
with a vintage violin bow stamped
in an old violin case.
The instrument is in an excellent condition. There are no cracks in it, and it only exhibits slight wear. The violin has a new luthier's setup including a new well fitted bridge & pegs & soundpost, the tailpiece with fine tuners are new as well.
The violin is ready to play, it has
a bright bright, brilliant tone and projects very well. New synthetic core strings are advisable to optimize the sound.

- total length: 590mm
The bow is in a nearly perfect condition too, just the very tip of the tip plate is missing (which will be sufficient to replace with the next hair exchange).The case is in a reasonable condition (taking its age in account), only the inner cross-piece is missing.

Remark on the strings:
Since one of the strings (A) snapped while I was tuning the violin yesterday, I've decided to replace all the strings with an unused (different) set.
Another note - on the instrument condition:
Although the quasi-linear blemish near the treble hole might look like a continuous crack under a certain view angle, it is NOT one! These are all just surface scratches. Similarly, the bright spots near the bass soundhole and the chinrest are blemishes too, just of a 'different kind'.
