Here we offer some instruments related to the classical Guarnerius violin.

On every violin we offer a video / soundfile, as well as detailed XXL pics from all different angles possible. Measures and weight are also stated in the descriptions.

All violins we offer have been checked in our workshop by our luthiers and by our violinist on tonality and playing conditions. Occasionaly existing issues like open seams or cracks, old repairs, missing parts or required improvements have been revised and taken notice of, and if necessary - carefully worked over. Our violins will sound and play well if you do so, and a little fine tuning will likely improve them.

  Nº 400
geipel violin  

An excellent old German Guarnerius violin - Reinhold Geipel Sons around 1920s.

Please listen to the video/soundfile & click on the image to see all detailed XXL photos below as part of the description! Stamped and labeled inside the body! This authentical German violin is a remarkable copy of the great Italian master Joseph Guarnerius, a highly recommendable antique instrument that was built around 1920s. The instrument offered here is definitely superior to most of its siblings, due to its exceptional quality craftsmanship and its rare, great sound. The fine purfling extends well into the corners and is the clear work of a talented and experienced violin maker, who chose exquisite tonewoods and decorated them with a traditional, tastefully applied red-brown colored varnish over a golden ground. The highly recommendable sound of this violin is bright and strong, with an immediate response, dominating, large and precise, very suitable for ambitious musicians.

This beautiful violin has been completely repaired in our workshop - see video of the restoration - and shows now no open cracks or open seams. It received a soundpost-patch and a new set-up with new ebony pegs, tailpiece and chinrest, a new bridge and new strings. These are new silver wound steel core strings. We use these strings on mostly all of our violins, to allow a comparison of the tonality of each instrument in the videos. We would recommend higher quality strings to increase the full character of this masterpiece! The table is finely grained spruce and the 1-piece back, as well as ribs and neck, is nicely flamed maple. Fingerboard is also ebony. Nicely carved scroll and accurately inlaid purfling. Like always the instrument has been checked by our violin player on playability.

Excellent old German quality violin in immediate playing condition! Great mature sound - listen to the sound on youtube ! Measures aprox.: total 59 cm / 23.2', body 35,8 cm / 14.1', vibrating chord length 32,5 cm / 12.8', weight 469 gr / ~16.5 oz. For further questions please feel free to ask
