Interesting Vogtland master violin, approx. 1770

This elegant masterpiece was built around 1770 and makes no secret of its Vogtland heritage: with its typical and slightly “angular” silhouette and its radiant yellow-brown varnish, this instrument is an outstanding representation of the fine tradition established by Caspar Hopf and his successors in the Vogtland region. The unknown master who created this instrument applied great care and experience to the excellent tone woods he selected: mildly flamed maple was used to create a two-piece back with an exceptionally interesting grain. The spruce of the top has a fine to moderate grain with an appealing texture. The rich varnish with its charming patina and traces of use reflects the approximately 250 years of the instrument's history. Mature craftsmanship is evident in the well-carved sound holes, a soft and moderately high arch and the delicately integrated purfling. Extensive restoration to top, back and ribs have no effect whatsoever on the sound or the playing characteristics and we can offer it at a reduced price, less than 50% of value. The violin's extremely powerful, warm and clear, colorful sound that is suitable for professionals and demanding players will win you over. The violin has been meticulously worked over in our atelier and is offered ready to play.
