WHAT DO THE MUSICIANS SAY ABOUT MY VIOLINS

My instruments are played by musicians in The Norwegian National Opera, Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra, The Norwegian Radio Orchestra, Trondheim Symphony Orchestra, and students from nearly all the music academies in Norway. In addition to many freelancers and educators throughout the country. A cello and a violin have been purchased by Dextra Musica, and are lent to music students at the Norwegian Academy of Music. Helgelandsfondet has bought a violin that is lent to local talents.

I can highly recommend Jacob von der Lippe’s instruments! I bought my violin in 2002, and I immediately fell in love with its sweetness and warmth.

I can warmly recommend Jacob von der Lippe’s instruments! I bought my violin in 2002, immediately falling in love with its sweetness and warmth. I was especially intrigued by how easily played it was ” in the middle register”, it responds immediately and clearly, and it is very easy to articulate distinctly. I have used the violin in orchestras, in chamber musical contexts and as a soloist; in the orchestra the sound of the violin blends with the whole without any difficulty, and being used in a solo context, it easily fills a greater hall. The violin has prooved to be very uncomplicated in daily use, it has been a truthful friend in extreme heat and cold, in humid and dry surroundings, after flights… no matter what conditions, the violin has “been there” equally strong. The only initial difficulty worth while mentioning was that I had to experiment a little to find the right A-string for my violin, luckily today there is quite a variety to choose from. Also my first impression of the violin corresponds very well with what I think of it now after 10 years.

On later occasions I have compared the violin with the older Italian, where von der Lippe’s instrument carries better and stronger than the Italian, -in a blind test with several musicians present.

Nils Thore Røsth, The Opera Orchestra at the Norwegian Opera & Ballet

“What made the biggest impression when I tried Jacob’s violin for the first time was how precise the sound was, and how great it sounded. It did not take long before I decided in 2003 to invest in this instrument. With the years that have has gone, the development has gone in the direction I had hoped for, and the fullness of the bass register becomes more and more enjoyable with time, without the golden bright sound in the higher registers having diminished. von der Lippe’s instrument carries better and stronger than the Italian, -in a blind test with several musicians present.I appreciate the bright shiny sound, while the instrument has impressive resistance, so it takes a lot before the sound cracks, which gives the strong sound.The instrument invites to elegance with its precise sound, and paves the way for virtuoso pieces, as it withstands a little “knock” something I have a lot of fun with. “

The violin projects the sound in a way that fills the room without being perceived as strenuous. It has a rich and warm, rich sound in all registers, at the same time as it is easy to play and articulate.

“With my von der Lippe violin, I finally got a work tool that worked with me, and helped me in my development as a violinist. It was wonderful to discover all the possibilities for timbre and volume in my new companion. The violin projects the sound in a way that fills the room without being perceived as strenuous. It has a rich and warm, rich sound in all registers, at the same time as it is easy to play and articulate. It mixes well in both chamber music and orchestra. The process of building your own violin is in itself very exciting, and experienced exclusively positively thanks to Jacob’s reliability and pleasant service attitude. “

I started looking for a new instrument, because I needed something that could project better in a hall and be loud enough in chamber groups. This violin projects very well, and I now find that I don’t have to work so hard to be heard.

It’s been very fun getting to know my new violin. I find it very easy to play, and already the first time I got to play it I felt that the sound had a depth and personality that continues to grow the more I play it. I started looking for a new instrument, because I needed something that could project better in a hall and be loud enough in chamber groups. This violin projects very well, and I now find that I don’t have to work so hard to be heard. This let’s me focus on bringing out nuances in the music I play. It’s also been so much fun talking to Jacob throughout the process, from when I first expressed interest in buying a violin, until it was finished and ready to be played.

Jacob von der Lippe has, at my request, made a copy of the instrument that I have owned since 1970; a violin made by the Italian violin maker Joseph Guarneri del Gesú in 1742 in Cremona.

“Jacob von der Lippe has, at my request, made a copy of the instrument I have owned since 1970; a violin made by the Italian violin maker Joseph Guarneri del Gesú in 1742 in Cremona. Guarneri del Gesú is one of the very best of all time. violin makers, yes there are many who believe that he surpasses all. Jacob von der Lippe has managed to make a copy of very good quality. There is naturally a fresher and more modern sound in the copy, partly because the tree but he has succeeded in creating a breeding ground for a sound rich in overtones in both weak and strong shades. And although the sound will always be the most important for the performer, Jacob von der Lippe has also created a beautiful violin that is strikingly similar to the original. “

Violin built for Arve Tellefsen in 2002:

“Thank you for the copy you made of my Guiseppe Guarneri del Gesu 1742 (ex Lord Emhurst of Hackney). Your copy is truly a fabulous piece of work! Your violin has a glow and shine in the tone that I really appreciate, and the tone is round and full at the same time. A combination that I would think is difficult to achieve. The instrument sets the tone very easily, but you can, if you want, dig deep into the strings and get more back all the time.

In appearance it is simply magnificent. The paint is beautiful, and it looks like my original to a dot. Thank you very much for a great job, and good luck with your instruments! “

I simply love this violin and would not trade it for anything.

Mari Lerseth, Freelance violinist

It has a very appealing sound: light, singing, harmonic, modular – it has both heat and edge, and is evenly good in all registers. In addition, it is incredibly easy to play – always in a good mood, and is not weather-sick.

The violin is incredibly easy to play and easy to articulate and has a smooth, full sound throughout the register.

I have had the pleasure of playing a Jacob von der Lippe violin since I bought it in the summer of 2020. The short time I have played it so far, I have experienced it as an easy-to-play instrument with very good responsiveness, but which still withstands a lot of impact if I wish. The violin has a very clear definition in what you set the tone, and I noticed early on how clearly it projected chords and doublestops, which is especially welcome in polyphonic Bach movements.

The violin is incredibly rich in overtones and I remember that I only rehearsed Bach’s solo sonatas and scores the first time because I was so inspired by the open sound.

Over the course of 20 years, my instrument has evolved a lot. The sound has become both bigger and warmer, my violin allows for a wide range of tonal shades, and it is very easy to play.
