We have found another wonderful Oskar C. Meinel. I am always amazed at how consistently good these violins are. This is an exceptional violin with a strong warm tone. Oskar C. Meinel is a trade name that was used by the Roth firm to increase imports into the USA.
The condition is very good. There are three small, almost indiscernible, repairs: a short repaired edge crack on the bass side-upper bout, a small repaired wing crack on the treble side, and a small section of edge repair on the upper bout of the treble side. Here’s your opportunity to pick up an amazing Oskar C. Meinel!
Setup with D’Addario Zyex strings.
