Roth Violin Labeled Oskar Meinel 1931

“Oskar Meinel” was a brand of violin produced in the E. H. Roth workshop and exported to the U.S. via Roth’s affiliate distributor, Scherl and Roth, a company run by his son. Scherl and Roth brought attention to Roth instruments in the US, where they remain very popular among players for their rich, powerful tone.

This lovely example has a rich and powerful tone with fine projection. One piece maple back with narrow flaming; pronounced spruce grain with even grain. Very refined varnish application, with beautiful transparency, in reddish-brown over golden ground.

Ernst Heinrich Roth (1877-1948)
Trained in the art of violin making by his father, Ernst Heinrich Roth was the finest German maker of his day. He received further training abroad, most notably in Italy and France, developing his patterns and varnishes based on the traditions of Stradivari, Guarneri and Amati, incorporating what he learned into his work. His high musical skills enabled Roth to build instruments with tonal qualities that continue to be in high demand. Starting his company in 1902, Roth employed the best apprentices, many becoming well-known and respected makers under his tutelage. Savvy in the ways of business, he also exported his instruments to the US via his son’s trading company, Scherl and Roth, bringing attention to Roth instruments to the US, where they remain very popular among players for their rich, powerful tone.
