In spite of all the precautions taken by manufacturers, few instruments are ready to be sold right out of the box. You can take peace of mind knowing that every instrument has been unboxed, set-up and tested by a professionally trained technician. This is how we are able to guarantee excellent playing condition.The Wilhelm Klier instruments, like the Rudoulf Doetsch model, are crafted in Germany using a time-honored workshop-method tradition. These high-end instruments are made of older wood to achieve a warmer sound. They are highly flamed and varnished with a deep coloration to give an exciting, old-fashioned look. The sound is described as rounder than that of a new instrument, almost as if it had already been broken in. These instruments are an excellent upgrade for the advanced musician.
