Our Killinger violin has a bright, clear, lyrical quality that makes it perfect for classical playing. This finely crafted instrument has a stunning one-piece back of highly-flamed maple finished in a transparent orange-red varnish.
This is one of Gary’s favorites of our Handmade American Violin Collection. These older American violin are an excellent investment presently as their value is steadily rising after being undervalued for many years.
Killinger is a known maker who appears in Thomas Wenberg’s “The Violin Makers of the United States”.
