Incredible sounding German violin ca.1900 labelled ‘Saxony’

LOB: 356mm

This is a very well made violin, definitely not your usual mass production German violin churned out quickly at low cost. It is the creation of a mastercraftsman who knew how to make a well constructed violin that would sound just great. It uses carefully selected tone wood to produce a most wonderful sounding violin that outperforms many far more expensive violins. I would say that it is a violin that has benefited from the passing of years, having become something much greater with the maturing of its voice.

This violin has been fully restored and a new Bass Bar fitted – which alone would cost close on £2000 – and it is fitted with Pirazzi Tonica strings, which match this violin really nicely, giving warmth to its naturally brilliant tone.

And what can I say about the sound of this violin. It has nice clarity, good response and excellent projection. It has a full sound that has the brilliance and warmth that you associate with a contemporary Italian violin – at a fraction of the cost.

It has been professionally set up not only to bring out the best in its sound but to make it comfortable and easy to play, which makes long hours of practice fly by. It is always a great pleasure to play and you will eagerly look forward to every practice session with renewed vigor and enthusiasm.

For this wonderful German masterpiece we are asking only


I believe that every violinist should have access to a great sounding instrument capable of expressing the passion within them at an affordable price. It is my mission to bring instruments capable of doing this to young and mature musicians alike, so that they can develop to the maximum as a musician and bring the joy of their hearts to the world. All violins are personally selected by myself as instruments with great tonal qualities that I would be proud to own as my sole violin. Each is carefully checked for build construction and condition. Any restoration work is done by my professional luthier partner and instruments are fitted with high quality fittings and usually Evah Pirazzi strings (although this may vary according to what we determine best suits the particular instrument). This is backed by a 12 months maintenance free guarantee - that is to say that we will undertake any maintenance  required on your violin within this period free of charge. All that you need to do is bring/ship the violin back to us. All violins come to you fully set up to their optimum and ready to play. We regularly ship worldwide, FREE of charge to you and fully insured. It is my experience that it takes at least 3 days of exclusive playing of an instrument to get accustomed to and appreciate it; with 7 days being preferable and the minimum time that should be allowed for trial of an instrument. Most shops allow 7-14 days for returns on purchases. I wish my customers a great buying experience and to have total confidence in their acquisition and consequently I give a 30 DAY RETURN PERIOD with a full refund of the purchase price provided that it is returned in the same condition. Any quality violin is a substantial financial commitment and one that you want to be confident will not be a depreciating asset. I am confident that any violin that I sell will at least hold its value over many years if well looked after and the majority will actually gain in value - this has been the general trend over a long period of time. I am willing to take any violin that I have sold back should you decide to upgrade and will give you the full purchase price paid for it, provided that it has been well looked after. I am here to help as much for you post-sale as I am before. I love to help and willingly give advice, assistance, and share my expertise and experiences at any time.
