The creation of two separate Germanys, one under Communist rule, saw a major exodus of violin making workshops from the now-Eastern German town of Markneukirchen, a traditional centre for German lutherie. Not all workshops departed, however—that of Eberhard Meinel remained and produced many student grade instruments over the following decades. This example has been well-cared for and produces a warm, even tone. Nicely selected wood, ebony fittings and a full professional set up make this violin very suitable for a young player graduating to their first full-sized instrument.
