About This Item

A fine example of Markneukirchen violin making of the golden era, our testers found this Gustav August Ficker violin to possess a powerful, well-balanced and appealing tone, suitable for both solo and ensemble work.

The violin has a back of one piece medium flamed maple on the diagonal; spruce top of evenly spaced medium grain. Delicately shaded oil varnish in orange-brown over a golden ground. Well-preserved Stradivari pattern, made especially for the venerable Chicago firm of William Lewis and Son, as noted on the label.

Gustav August Ficker
The Ficker family, of Markneukirchen, is related to Ernst Heinrich Roth. Together, they formed the famous firm of E. H. Roth. Ficker's work exhibits fine, bold craftsmanship and wood selection, very similar to the work of E. H. Roth.

The E.H. Roth Workshop
Founded in 1902 by Ernst Heinrich Roth, the E. H. Roth company has been 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.
