This 4/4 Klaus Heffler violin has a fine textured sound that is sweet, bright, responsive, and mellow.
It bears a printed interior label that reads:
Model-No.: 706 Size: 4/4 Forchheim, anno 2008
Made in Germany Antik
The back of this violin is formed from two pieces of quarter-cut maple, marked by beautiful, narrow-width flame, which slants downward from the center joint. The wood on the ribs and scroll is similar to that of the back. The grain of the two-piece spruce top is straight, very narrow, and even.
The instrument is covered with a warm, orange-brown varnish, over a golden-brown ground. It is lightly antiqued and shaded by the maker. This instrument is in excellent condition.
