TODAY’S FEATURED INSTRUMENT:
INSTRUMENT/MAKER: Violin by Ernst Heinrich Roth
ABOUT: Ernst Heinrich Roth lived from 1877 to 1948. He is a master luthier and owned a large and very successful violin-making shop in an East German town of Markneukirchen, Germany located near the border of today’s Czech Republic. After World War II, the workshop moved to Bubenreuth in the newly formed Federal Republic of Germany.
Roth Violins are part of a legacy of Roth family luthiers. Violins made in the Ernst Heinrich Roth workshop are highly sought after. These German instruments not only have beautiful workmanship but a powerful tone. The Roth workshop followed many different famous violin patterns including Stradivari, Guarneri, Amati, and Ruggieri.
The Roth violin that is featured here from our inventory at Day Violins is a copy of a Stradivari violin from 1700. It has an internal brand and serial number on the inside above the label. This violin was made in 1936 in Markneukirchen and is a fine example of the instruments coming from the Roth workshop during that period.
