German Bubenreuth violin, Karl Becker, 1970's

This German fullsize violin is a Karl Becker trademark instrument that was made in the well-known Franconian town Bubenreuth in the 1970's. The fully handmade instrument is modeled on the classic Stradivari model, it is quite beautifully made with well-considered archings. The maker focussed on premium materials and accurate craftsmanship. So it was possible to create a highly attractive string instrument of outstanding sound quality. The premium tonewoods are covered with a bright and shiny golden-brown varnish. The spruce top and the maple back are ornamented with a delicate purfling. This undamaged German Karl Becker violin was carefully worked over by our professional luthier, who worked it over and set it up with a new soundpost, a new bridge, new Pirastro strings, etc.. The violin sound is of outstanding quality in the price range: strong, clear, mature, radiant, balanced and of notable power.
