Antique Hopf violin, Klingenthal approx. 1800

This historic Hopf violin was made in the Saxonian town of Klingenthal around 1800, if not perhaps somewhat later.

The premium quality of this fine master quality Hopf violin is clearly evident in details.

This historic Hopf violin was made in the Saxonian town of Klingenthal around 1800, if not perhaps somewhat later. It is a classic example of the characteristics found in a historic German violin model which dates back to Caspar Hopf; aficionados today still appreciate the Hopf violin model because of its strong, nuanced and complex sound. The premium quality of this fine master quality Hopf violin is clearly evident in details. The touch of an experienced luthier is also apparent in the beautiful soft flaming of the one-piece maple back. Like many historic stringed instruments of its era, some minor worm repairs can be seen on the ribs of the Hopf violin which no impact on sound or stability of the violin. At our atelier for violin making and restoration this fine Hopf master violin - which has no cracks -was carefully restored and we can recommend this ready-to-play instrument without any reservations; this beautiful Hopf violin offers a wide scope of musical options to demanding musicians. Its sound is mature and powerful, with a character that is as warm as it is bright, full of tone colours and very well balanced across all strings and up and down the fingerboard.

The "Violins" section features our attractive online selection of antique violins and master violins for sale, with audio sound samples.
