Fine Klingenthal master violin, Hopf

A fine antique Klingenthal master violin. The violin is a unique instrument of character, made around 1800 in Klingenthal by a member of the Hopf family (one of the most famous names of early German violin making). The member of the Hopfs who made the violin remains to be determined. The squary model, wood selection, the quality of workmanship and finally the beautiful varnish are very typical. The top is made of fine grained spruce, the one piece back of flamed maple. The master violin is restored and in fine playing condition. Some uncritical repairs to the table have been repaired (none of them critical or in the soundpost regions). The violins colorful ancient sound is of excellent clarity, volume and strength, with full volume in the lower ranges and clear sweetness in the higher ranges. A character instrument having an excellent modulatable tone.
