Axel Rundström – violin, Stockholm, 1922
This violin in excellent condition by Swedish maker Axel Rundström with its attractive golden amber varnish and excellent quality tone woods represents an excellent value for a violin over 94 years old.
The violin has a sweet and open sound with plenty of harmonics to give it a sparkling sound over a warm core of tone that is pleasing under the ear and in the room. The top of the violin is of good quality tone wood with even grain spruce, the back is of good quality flamed maple brought to life by the transparent and attractive golden amber varnish.
The violin is in excellent condition with no cracks or damage of any kind apart from normal nicks and dings from being handled for over 90 years. Our luthiers have taken great care to set up the violin for optimal sound and playability.
