Antique Hopf violin of Klingenthal, approx. 1800

This well played antique violin bears the orignal Hopf brandstamps on the back and inside, it was made in Klingenthal around 1800 in the Hopf ateliers. The characteristic squary model is a typical Hopf model. The unique and highly patinated varnish may tell the interested player many of the violins history from the past 200 years. The tonewoods with remarkable tonal qualities. The top is made of medium grained spruce, the two piece back of narrow flamed maple. Meaningful wear from playing to the varnish indicates that this Hopf violin has been extensivley played - yet it remains in excellent, nearly perfect substantial condition with most minor repairs. The instrument has been carefully set up and adjusted by our luthiers and is in fine and immediate playing condition. Its beautiful ancient sound is warm, silvery and colorful.
