Gottfried Raabs was an accomplished German violin maker whose instruments are considered an insider tip among professional musicians. With its radiantly bright sound rich in overtones and comfortable playing characteristics, this violin, which is light and comfortable to hold, is a reliable partner for orchestral service and chamber music.

Its provenance from the estate of a member of the Beethoven Orchestra Bonn alone qualifies this Gottfried Raab violin as a high-quality instrument for professional musicians. Crafted from the finest tonewoods under a rich, transparent oil varnish, it is the perfect expression of the mature craftsmanship of its maker - who has created an extensive oeuvre since 1956. Initially an employee in the renowned workshop of Ernst Heinrich Roth, Raabs set his own artistic accents as an independent master from 1981, for which he won numerous awards at international violin making competitions. The violin offered here bears the original label and brand stamp of Gottfried Raabs; as a comparatively young instrument from his late work, it is in top condition and undamaged.
