Heinrich Th. Heberlein Jr. Violin 1929

Born in 1902, Theodor Heinrich Heberlein was immersed in the art of violin making his entire life, working first for his father, the respected Markneukirchen maker Paul Wilhelm Heberlein. A careful and serious maker, after he obtained his master's certificate he spent a number of years working in Berlin, where he learned the art of restoration of fine Italian violins, then working in New York City. He returned mid-century to head the family firm, the famed Heberlein workshop.

The Heberlein hand is seen clearly in this outstanding example of the master's work, with careful attention given from the wood selection to final varnishing and finishing. Beautifully balanced tonal colors, power and projection, make this an unusually versatile violin.

The back is crafted from two pieces of choice flamed maple of medium grain, with matching neck and scroll. The top is of medium, straight grained spruce. Bold red varnish carefully applied over golden ground, with tasteful antique shading.

The Heberlein Workshop
The first Markneukirchen firm to artfully combine mastery of violin making with sound business practices, the great reputation of the Heberlein Workshop has lasted to the present day. Founded upon the principles of his family's violin making traditions, the company was started by Heinrich Theodore Heberlein Jr., who was born in Markneukirchen in 1843. His reputation quickly grew, with dozens of awards and medals to follow. Adherence to the highest possible quality standards, in wood selection, craftsmanship, varnish and finishing, and especially superior tone, was noticed in international markets. In the United States, the Wurlitzer Company represented Heberlein Workshop instruments, proclaiming them as the "highest grades acknowledged to be the grandest tone instruments produced". Indeed, today's experts consider them among the preeminent German instruments.
