Violin made by Vik Vandamme – Roeselare 2023

It is with great pleasure that I present my collaboration with the talented Belgian violin maker Vik Vandamme. He worked under my guidance in my workshop four years ago, and during the autumn of 2023 he made this violin for me. This is the fifth violin he has made based on my own personal “von der Lippe” model, and all are played daily by Norwegian musicians and music students. The violin is made from first-class wood; Italian alpine spruce, a beautiful maple back, sides and neck in European flamed maple.

Once again, it’s nice to see how Vik’s style comes out in this violin, which he has also varnished with his own oil varnish based on the same recipe that I use. The violin is set up by Vik under my guidance with Evah Pirazzi strings, and has a warm and full tone that projects well. This is the instrument for those who want the taste of a von der Lippe violin at a very competetive price. In the pictures below, you can see how exactly this violin was created by Vik’s skilled hands and knowledge.

This violin was sold quickly after it arrived my workshop, to a talented young violinist in Oslo. Are you interested in the next violin Vik will make? Get in touch on 90019140 or for a chat.
