Höfner Model 11E Violin
With more time allotted for shaping the arches and carving the graduations of the plates, the Höfner makers are capable of achieving better acoustic response and a fuller tonal spectrum on the Model 11E. The attractive spruce and maple are clearly seen through the more transparent ground coat and antiqued orange-brown spirit varnish. Includes ebony Parisian eye pegs and endbutton, Despiau "B" level French bridge, ebony tailpiece with E tuner, Guarneri model ebony chinrest, and Larsen Virtuoso strings. 4/4 only.
For nearly 130 years Höfner of Germany has been producing quality string instruments and bows. Karl Höfner started the company in 1887 in Schönbach, which was the European center of its day for musical instrument production. Over the coming decades, Höfner's business grew to meet global demands, earning a reputation for high-quality craftsmanship and economically-efficient working methods. Now located at Hagenau in Bavaria, Höfner uses the traditional methods of violinmaking and bowmaking, tried and true for generations, to create a wide range of instruments and bows suitable for students as well as professionals.
