Circa 1890-1900 Workshop Stradvarius Copy. German, or quite possibly French construction. Powerful and balanced, an uncommon find among the many German "trade" instruments that come through the door. We put this instrument in the hands of some of our favorite violinists and fiddlers and it recieved nothing short of the highest praise for sound quality and projection. Currently strung with Prim Orchestra and a Pirastro gold E.
