English violin of the John Johnson school, approx. 1750 (certificate Christian Lijsen)

This 18th century English violin of the John Johnson school has an unusually attractive and distinctive appearance. Its one-piece back of beautiful maple (which was also used for the ribs), the transparent and luminous golden-brown varnish, and the purfling set close to the edge all serve as a compelling tribute to the luthier's good taste and flawless craftsmanship. The London violin was patterned after a very unique model with a table with medium arch. This places it in the ranks of violins which can be warmly recommended not because of their famous origins but because of their outstanding aesthetic and acoustic qualities. With its bright, radiant, powerful voice full of resonance and power, its sonorous sound is precise and has an immediate response, opening up a broad range of interpretations for soloist performance. This interesting English violin made its way to us with minor restoration in remarkable condition, and our restoration specialist has carefully worked it over to the highest standard. It is especially recommended for professional musicians with demanding standards.
