German master violin by Otto Ebner, Augsburg

Made later in the career of master craftsman Otto Ebner from Augsburg, this German master violin is distinguished by its individuality and maturity. Ebner was born in the Vogtland region and learned his trade in Markneukirchen; he then worked at F. C. Louis' famous Saarbrücken workshop and gradually made his way to Georg Piegendorfer in Augsburg, one of the most interesting figures in late 19th-century violin making. After Piegendorfer's death in 1906, Otto Ebner took on the studio and proved to be a worthy successor who set self-assured accents in his work, which was patterned after the Stradivari model. The design of this instrument is quite broad and features archings that are reminiscent of the French style; its wide and quite delicate inlay with a bright centre elegantly complements the golden-red oil varnish that highlights the fine wood of the top and the deeply flamed maple back. Otto Ebner's masterful and meticulous style produced a violin with a delicately balanced tone that has precision and strength; the instrument is very responsive and rich in timbre. It was worked over by our experienced luthier and is offered ready to play.
