The Klier family have been active as violin makers and manufacturers for several generations. The Jürgen Klier workshops are based in Mörendorf, an outlying town northwest of the major violin making centre of Bubenreuth. This half-sized violin has been well made, with a strongly scraped, attractively antiqued varnish. The tone is very good for a small instrument, with warmth, depth and clarity. The violin has been well set up and is very easy to play.
It comes with a sturdy, oblong case and two bows.
