Czechoslovakian violin labelled Stradivarius

SKU: C569

Western Czechoslovakia, like its Saxon counterparts on the other side of the German border, boasted a major violin making centre in Schönbach. The city, now known as Luby, was home to a number of large musical instrument workshops which, in their heyday, produced around one hundred and fifty thousand violins a year, most of them labelled with the names of the great makers of the late seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries. This well-loved Stradivari copy, made between WWI and WWII, has been fully set up in our professional workshops and has a pleasant, straightforward tone that will appeal to a middle grade student looking for an instrument with an authentic historical ambience.
