English Baroque violin, 18th century

This recommended Baroque violin from 18th century England can be seen as a typical representation of a historic model, not despite its unusual silhouette but because of it. This interesting baroque violin harkens back to a time in which the standards in the field of violin making were more fluid and allowed room for luthiers to set individual stylistic accents. As a violin dating back to the late 18th century, it is a comparatively young exemplar of a period instrument, and its unknown English luthier patterned it after a delicate yet broad and uniquely proportioned model. The baroque violin's craftsmanship with the typical drawn purfling of 18th century English trade instruments demonstrates a simpler quality yet is rich in character; since it is in outstanding condition, the artisanry can still be seen in the overall construction. Both the upper block and the bass bar did not fall prey to later modernisation — as is the case with many other older instruments — which means that the baroque violin fully upholds the expectations created by its small and conspicuously baroque sound holes and confidently shaped historic scroll. The top of medium to wide-grained spruce features well-formed and soft fluting; it has as back and ribs no repairs, as is rarely seen for a well-played instrument of its age. The baroque violins voice is very strong for a Baroque violin and yet extremely warm. It is precise, resonant and full of power. A rare piece, the instrument has been preserved in nearly perfect condition and was meticulously set up in our restoration workshop. It is now ready to play after having been fitted with a high-quality Baroque bridge and catgut strings. This piece is affordable, in original condition and meets high musical standards.
