    Mike ~ I just picked up a violin with Steiner stamped on the back of the instrument near the neck heel. Is yours marked the same way? thanks Steve

    Crazy stuff: I recently found a Steiner violin in a dumpster in Chicago, with the same characteristics you described. It has the unusual raised back and raised soundboard, and "Steiner" stamped on the back at the base of the neck. No label inside. Did
    you ever find out more information on yours?

    I Have an instrument that is stamped Steiner in the same place as yours but I see no sign of a signature or stamp on the inside. Mine also has the same high arching you speak of and it has a warm tone that I quite like and that other players have had
    favorable comments about. Mine is in excellent condition and I see or hear nothing that makes it appear to be just another cheap copy. Steve
