A Good German Violin, Probably Bubenruth, 1960’s.
Wood choice, varnish, and craftsmanship are consistent with the mid 60’s production of the Roth workshop. There was a corner of a label rolling around inside from the Roth workshop, but no stamps or any other attribution. As such, it is judged simply by its own merit. Repaired compression damage to the lower edge on the treble bout, and otherwise entirely in good preservation.
It’s voice is full and robust, easily articulable, clear and projecting; with a pleasant lyrical quality generally limited to finer more expensive instruments. Heartily recommended for anyone with a $3,000 budget searching for a quality violin at a price that won’t break the bank.
