Fine master violin by Ernst Heinrich Roth (Hieronymus Köstler)

Ernst Heinrich Roth, one of Markneukirchen's outstanding violin makers, created this remarkably beautiful violin during the height of his craft. The 1724 Stradivari model has features that are typical of E.H. Roth's best instruments which have garnered more attention in recent times and become some of the most sought-after German violins. It has high-quality tonewoods with remarkable aesthetics like the even, fine-grained spruce of the top; a back of maple with strong, deep flames that define the expressive look of the scroll; a rich oil varnish of a delicate red-brown colour over a golden ground. Minor traces of age and use give the instrument character and enhance the beauty of its craftmanship. As works of a talented and versatile musician, Roth's master violins stand out due to their outstanding sound qualities, a fact which this perfectly preserved instrument with its large, clear and dominant tone demonstrates impressively. It was looked over by our luthier and is offered ready to play. With a certificate of authenticity issued by the renowned expert Hieronymus Köstler, Stuttgart.

A certificate of appraisal can be ordered for this violin.
