This example from the workshop of E.H. Roth is a reproduction of a 1736 violin by Josef Guarnerius del Gesu which Roth had had the opportunity to study during one of his visits to England. Possessing an excellent combination of core and color, this instrument is as equally at home in an ensemble as it is in a solo setting. The back is of two pieces of well flamed maple and the oil varnish represents the absolute peak level of workmanship coming from this shop. The model IXR violin was one of the more rare models produced by the shop of E.H. Roth. As such, this instrument represents a rare opportunity to own a master level instrument and a compelling piece of history.
The E.H. Roth Workshop
Founded in 1902 by Ernst Heinrich Roth, the E. H. Roth company has regularly produced some of the finest German stringed instruments. It has also produced some of the best violin makers in Germany, who apprenticed with the firm and developed into master violin makers. All Roth violins have the Roth label inside, with the names of the best makers appearing on the labels.
