This one was in the shop for less than 48 hours.
Charles A. Voigt emigrated to to the United States from Markneukirchen and established a shop in Philadelphia at the intersection of Cherry and 17th in 1882. He passed in 1919 and was succeeded by his son, Albin Voigt. Crafted in 1893, almost 130 years ago, this American viola by Chas. A. Voigt represents a dynasty of German violin making traditions spanning several generations and across greater Voigtland and into England. Though the back measures 400mm, a length of 15 3/4,” this viola boasts a voice of robust, woody, and well aged character.
