Master violin by Wenzl Fuchs, Erlangen

A German master violin made around 1980 by Wenzl Fuchs in Eltersdorf near Erlangen, this well-crafted master violin is a piece of the best quality made by this familiar maker. Wenzl Fuchs came from a long line of violin makers from the Czech village of Schönbach, and Wenzl Fuchs was one of the German luthiers who was forced out of Czechoslovakia and settled in the Franconian region after WWII. His violin remain in international demand to this day, especially in the US. The master's extensive experience is evident in several different details of this very compelling instrument. Wenzl Fuchs chose the finest tone woods: moderately-grained spruce for the top and deeply flamed sycamore maple for the back. The large scroll is an impressive demonstration of Wenzel Fuchs's aesthetic sensibility and artisanal abilities. We recommend this master violin as a special occasion to acquire a good instrument with a professional-quality sound — bright, warm and rich in timbre, with a sweet note and a radiant resonance to it.
