The Maidstone is one of the best known antique brands. Maidstones were originally imported for a schools music project and there are still plenty of them around. They are known for producing a good tone for the price.
This one has been newly set up and is perfectly sound and ready to play. It has a dark brown varnish and a well flamed back. It is fitted with Evah Pirazzi strings and has new rosewood tuning pegs and a new good quality bridge. There are no cracks (repaired or otherwise) and there is no further work that needs to be done. This instrument carries my standard one year guarantee. If you want a Wittner tailpiece instead, or a different chinrest, just say.
