Baiersdorf, Germany has been home to the Lothar Semmlinger workshop for 37 years, and it from this workshop that we have this gem. Built as a trade instrument, it has the design features and details you would expect to find on 19th century violins; finely worked edges, a slight fluting at the f holes, and true Strad pattern proportions. This is in keeping with the Semmlinger tradition of instruments that both sound and look like old masters. The beautifully flamed one-piece back, the effortless power, and the “growl” on the bottom end make this an obvious choice for Irish, Scottish, or American fiddlers as well as the classical player.
