About This Item

One of the finest contemporary makers we have encountered, Günter Lobe learned his craft in the traditional German apprenticeship system. With this firm foundation and a gifted artistic sensibility, Lobe won international awards for his making, including several medals at the "Triennale Internazionale" in Cremona. He attributes hi success to close interaction with professional musicians and a deep respect for the great old Italian masters. The meticulous workmanship and stunning tonal qualities of Lobe's instruments are to be enjoyed for generations to come.

Note: Images are typical of this model, but may vary due to being an individually crafted instrument by a master maker.

Asked On: 07/08/2021

What brand of strings are on this violin? I purchased the Gunter Lobe violin in February 2021 and really like the sound and playability! Thank you! Suzanne

SHAR Answer:

Hi Suzanne, thanks for your question! These currently are set up with Vision Titanium Solo strings with a Gold E. The strings, however, can vary depending on the "batch" of instruments we get in. We will always put on what best works at that time. I would suggest sending a picture of the winding colors at the tailpiece to our Director of Product Operations, Aaron J. at [email protected]. He will be able to identify the exact strings on your instrument so that you can get a new set.

Hello, I was told that this violin #gl96 would be in stock by Dec. How much longer till it's in?

SHAR Answer:

Hi Noah, thank you for your question! We were hoping to have these in by December but the maker has not been able to send us any of them. At this time we have no additional information on a projected delivery date. We apologize for the inconvenience. I would recommend taking a look at the AH94 or the KJS1732G.
