Very nice German (Markneurkerchen) violin by Karl Hermann, Model A217. Made in 1964 in the style of Antinious Stradiuarius, this good quality full size student instrument is made of solid Spruce top and solid flamed Maple sides and back. It is in good playing condition with only very moderate marks and dings to show for it's almost 60 years and remains very attractive. The action is comfortable and the tone clear and resonant. Comes with an older grey plastic case in fair to good condition, with all latches working.
