Hopf Repair Complete

Hopf Repair Complete

April 2015

 

Here are a few more shots of the Hopf violin. I played it once I completed the set up and…wow. What a sound. Deep and rich and full. It was such a pleasure to hear the violin sing again as it should despite its damage over the years. If you scroll back to earlier posts about this instrument, you’ll notice that it had two bass bars! It’s sounding great with one (as it should). Below are photos of the neck while setting it, the completed neck set, the completed end bock repair, and a final shot of the violin.
