About This Item

This violin represents the top model from the venerable E. H. Roth workshop, and is in a perfect state of preservation. The tone is strong, sweet and well-balanced, with a warm foundation. Based on a 1725 Stradivari pattern, this violin was made using the best wood from Roth’s stock. The back is of one piece of quarter sawn maple, with beautifully figured medium grain maple running at a diagonal from bass to treble. The top is of straight, fine grained spruce. The varnish is deep red-brown over a golden ground, with expert and tasteful shading.

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, and the model number of the instrument also appearing, indicative of the level. Ernst Heinrich Roth himself is unquestionably considered the best maker at his family’s company.
