About This Item

Paul Knorr, born in 1882, studied violinmaking with Dolling. Working in Berlin and Breslau, he established himself in the Markneukirchen workshop of F & R Enders in 1918. Starting in 1921, Knorr became and independent maker. Attaining mastery of his craft, Knorr was highly respected for wood and material selection. He was also adept at following the patterns, approach, and varnishing techniques of the Cremonese masters. 

This particular example of his work dates to 1938. The violin possesses a dark and rich tonal color that has become synonymous with German making from that time period. While this violin is ideally suited for ensemble playing, the projection and presence in the tone also enable it to fill virtually any role necessary for your musical needs. The back is made of a single piece of stunningly flamed maple with perfectly matched ribs and neck. A subtle light brown varnish over a natural ground finishes off this violin by the German master maker.
