Tiebel-Violine w case Vintage violin horn *RARE* LOOK!SOLD!!!!

A Stroh violin, Stro(h)viol, violinophone, or horn-violin is a violin that amplifies its sound through a metal resonator and metal horns rather than a wooden sound box as on a standard violin. The instrument is named after its German designer, Johannes Matthias Augustus Stroh, who patented it in 1899. The Stroh violin is also closely related to other horned violins using a mica sheet resonating diaphragm known as Phonofiddles.
In the present day, many types of horn-violin exist, especially in the Balkans.
This is very similar to the Stroh; it was made in Germany by Tiebel-Violine. It has  the patent # DRWZ  355993  stamped into the metal. See pics.
This is 100% complete, in beautiful condition, plays beautifully and has the original case(somewhat worn) see pics.  I have seen these sell from $3,500 to $4200.  From a recent collectors  estate.

His lable is inside the instrument. Built in 1895. please study the pictures and ask questions prior to bidding.  Sr Vincentinus values this instrument at between $2500-3000. I am a mandolin player and fiddle playing friends who have played this are enchanted by the ring and sweet tone  of the A string and power of the tone quality over all. This comes with a light weight case and no bow. I am sure the new owner will already own a terrific bow to match the quality of this ready to play violin.

Here we have an English made Vintage Banjo uke “Roy Smeck” junior model. It is in very fine shape and signed by Roy Smeck himself. all original.  The frets are slightly proud of the fingerboard…….in a moister climate, the neck would swell back and the frets would be just fine. The factory green and gold paint are quite showy! The head has a small hole as can be seen next to Roy’s signature.  This collectors uke has all original parts and has a chipper voice, stays in tune and would be a nice addition to your unique stash of banjo ukes. The nameplate is in fine condition. No case. I will pack super carefully and insure. Please email with any questions.
