This is the third violin from luthier Ruth Obermayer, made in Granada, Spain that we have featured here at Fiddlershop. This particular violin, made in 2019 is modeled after the famous Stradivarius "Gibson ex-Hubermann" violin, owned and played by virtuoso Joshua Bell. Ruth's violins are known for their beautiful characteristics and outstanding craftsmanship. This violin is very well-balanced over the four strings, has tremendous depth, power, and focused tone.
Just like most instruments that are sold through our shop, this instrument has gone through our extensive quality control and comes with our signature setup. This instrument is also covered by our lifetime structural warranty and lifetime free adjustments.
