This violin from the workshop of Heberlein Jr. has a brilliant upper register and a projection to soar over an ensemble. This Guarneri Copy is dated from 1912 and represents the execellent work coming from the Heberlien shop during that time period. A deep red varnish highlights the well flamed maple back, ribs, and scroll resulting in a violin that will be a perfect match for the aspiring violinist.

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.
