Violin after Jacob Stainer 1679 in baroque setup. This wonderful original is one of the very few that remain in an unaltered condition, even the pegs are original. It gives clear information on the angle of the neck and height of fingerboard etc. Stainer instruments are very similar in style to those of the Amati family. The instrument below has maple veneered fingerboard and tail piece based on originals and the pegs are of boxwood and bone. It has a wonderful full and sweet tone.
