595 German
Late 19th or early 20th century German Strad copy, unlabelled. Made with plain woods, the maple back very lightly flamed and bearing dark spalting marks, the top of broad-grained spruce. What it lacks in looks it makes up for in sound. It projects well and is easy to play, mellow in the lower ranges, sweet at the top. A really nice fiddle for an advancing student.
Condition: Dings and scratches to be expected, no cracks, repairs or other issues.
Set-up: A nice set of French rosewood pegs, recycled. New sound post and Aubert bridge, new Wittner tailpiece and Tonica strings.
Price, including a new case and bow: SOLD
