For many decades, German violin
makers have made quality violins for the world. Today, Germany continues
to be the leader in producing new medium to high-end quality violins.
As one of the most prominent violin
makers in Germany, the Ernst Heinrich Roth's family has been making quality
violins for 7 generations. Ernst Heinrich Roth continues his family legacy
by following the same violin making technology perfected by his family more than
a 100 years ago. His violins have won many awards throughout the world and
are often featured in music publications. Today, Ernst Heinrich Roth has established
his name as one of the most prestigious names in the violin world.
This Roth violin is one of the best new German violins we have seen on the
market. Warm and rich in its sound production, this violin has such
clarity in its sound projection that is unfound in most violins. This
quality allows the tone of the violin to travel far and wide with minimal degradation,
perfect for solo performance in a hall as well as ensemble and orchestra
performances. This violin also has a great balance between its treble (E-string) and bass
(G-string) registers. This gives this violin the much needed agility a violinist requires while playing through a
technically challenging musical work. In addition, a violinist will be
able to effortlessly command a full range of colorful tonal texture from this violin.
This violin will respond to the will of the violinist.
Completely handcrafted, this violin is made with superior
Roth craftsmanship using
the the best seasoned wood in the world. The violin back is made with
beautifully flamed maple (also called Tiger wood or curly maple). The side, neck and scroll are
also made with the same superior quality wood.
The violin top features very well pronounced spruce, another sign of superior quality material.
This violin has a golden antique finish, making it an astonishing beautiful looking
With the Roth's reputation, master
craftsmanship and his previous violins that have already undergone the test of
time, we know this violin will mature very well through time and its sound
quality will get even better as it gets played.

octagonal Pernambuco bow and a suspension case. The octagonal bow is made out of
professional grade Pernambuco with Mongolian horsehair providing great

viola stored inside it. It also features well padded handle, large subway handle, accessory

top, maple violin back, sides, neck, and scroll
Violin top is made out of
superior quality well pronounced spruce. The quality of the spruce
used to make the violin top is one of the major factors affecting the
sound quality of a violin.
Violin scroll, neck, side,
and back are made with beautifully flamed superior quality maple. Flamed is a term used
to describe the amount of grain (wood pattern) in maple. Using
higher flamed maple to make the side and back of the violin increases
both aesthetics and value of the violin.

Tuning pegs are made out of
superior quality ebony wood for trouble-free tuning. Ebony is preferred over hardwood since it is more stable and less likely to slip causing violin to go out of tune.

Dents on the fingerboard make it very difficult to play the violin in tune.
