$3,850.00

German Craftsmanship. American Attitude.

Our Karl Joseph Schneider® Stradivari is made especially for SHAR by our partner workshop in Germany. Fine craftsmanship, aged tonewoods, lightly-antiqued but traditional varnish and close attention to detail make the Stradivari unmistakably German. But we wanted a more aggressive sound, dark but with focus, projection and articulation, for the creative violinist who often plays a wide variety of musical styles. The moment you draw your bow across the strings, you'll see immediately that the Schneider® Stradivari delivers on this promise.

Tyrolean Cello "Matthias Albani" c. 1850

Item# F2 S5004

Contact a Specialist for Pricing Details

In Stock

Mathias Albani is a fascinating and mysterious maker of the old Tyrolean school, whose influence on some of the greatest Italian luthiers should not be underestimated. His authenticated work is subtle and beautifully proportioned, with a varnish that is quite equal to the best of the Venetians. It owes nothing to Stainer, but much to the Amati, yet is still entirely personal and distinctive. He was born in St Nikolaus in Kaltern, a village on the northern shore of the Kaltern lake in southern Tyrol 1621, but at some early stage moved a short distance north to Bozen. The region was at that time Austrian, and remained so until the end of the First World War. It is now Italian, and the towns have dual names; Kaltern is Caldaro in Italian, and Bozen is also known as Bolzano. It is a lushly forested area, with ample supplies of the tone wood which made the whole Tyrol such fertile ground for instrument makers in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. A little to the north of Bozen is Bressanone, the birthplace of Matteo Gofriller. Jacob Stainer's birthplace, Absam lies further north and Brescia is roughly an equal distance to the south. The link between these towns is the Brenner Pass, the most important trading link through the alps since Roman times.
