WHAT DO THE MUSICIANS SAY ABOUT MY VIOLINS
My instruments are played daily by musicians in, among others, the Norwegian Opera & Ballet, the Broadcasting Orchestra, the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra, the Trondheim Symphony Orchestra, and students at most music institutions 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, immediately falling in love with its sweetness and warmth.
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.
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.
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.
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.

I simply love this violin and would not trade it for anything.
The violin is incredibly easy to play and easy to articulate and has a smooth, full sound throughout the register.
Looking forward to many years with the violin!
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.
My “Jacob von der Lippe” instrument has shaped itself well to my personality, with a round pleasant tone. It easily fills various concert halls, be it the large ones (eg Oslo Concert Hall) or the small ones.

There are many benefits to acquiring a new instrument; you characterize the sound with your own personality, the instrument is fresh and healthy, and you get follow-up throughout the instrument’s lifetime. This is easy to forget when buying a new instrument, but in the long run it is something my customers really appreciate. It’s like a long friendship between the instrument, the musician and me.
