Contemporary German master violin, Bernhard Gerstner, 1993

The provincial provenance of this beautiful German master violin by Bernard Gerstner in Ulm quite mysterious, a stunning fact due to the extraordinary fine quality of the instrument that was built in 1993. The medium high arching of the top, its fine spruce wood and the soft fluting impressively demonstrate the skills of Bernhard Gerstner as a well-educated master, who chose flamed sycamore maple for the two-piece back, a great tonewood as well! The soundholes, the purfling and the edges were thoroughly and precisely crafted, a contemporary state-of-the-art violin that is the clear work of a talented and experienced hand. The milky yet transparent orange-brown colored oil varnish was richly applied and features a beauty that is rarely found. Some slight craquelle and some most minor storing traces as they can be found on this violin are typical for this kind of quality varnish. With a short repair to the upper part of the back we are able to offer this good instrument at a reduced price, which is around 50% of the retail value of a new Bernhard Gerstner violin. Our experienced luthier looked over this good instrument and spent time and effort according to the quality of the violin, that expresses its amazing voice ready to play, with a bright and warm sound, that is rich in overtones and resonant.
