Violin after Stradivarius, Germany, 1950's

German violin, "copy of Stradivarius" with voluminous sound

This violin is a copy of Stradivari, built in the 1950s in Western Germany, following Saxonian traditions of violin making; most probably it comes from the Franconian town Bubenreuth, where many of the German violin makers from Bohemia settled after World War II. The instrument is a solid piece, well-crafted and aesthetically appealing with its golden-brown transparent spirit varnish, covering the top which is made from nice, medium grained spruce, and the gentle flames of the one-piece back. As the label "Copy of Stradivarius, Made in Germany" indicates, the violin was built for export trade. Obviously its former owners loved to play this instrument and left some typical traces of use on it; and indeed its sound is quite motivating to play, strong and mature, clear, open and warm, dark and full of character. We are offering the violin in perfect condition, ready to play and worked over completely by our experienced luthier.
