Violin made by William Szott – Manchester 2021

After many years in the wonderful world of violin making, I am keen to pass on my knowledge. The talented violin maker William Szott from England was on a work stay in my workshop some time ago. After he returned to his own workshop, we have continued to work together. As a result, he has made three violins on my own personal “von der Lippe” model, and all are played daily by very satisfied Norwegian musicians and music students.

The fourth violin is now ready to be presented in Norway. It is interesting to see how Williams’ personality shines through in this violin, which he has also varnished with his self-composed oil varnish. The violin is set up with Evah Pirazzi strings, and has a beautiful tone. The top is made of a piece of spruce that is 90-100 years old. This piece of spruce was once bought from violin maker Rummelhoff-Hansen, Christiania. This is the instrument for those who want the taste of a von der Lippe violin, but at an affordable price. The violin is insured and can be borrowed at home for up to two weeks. You can watch a YouTube video of another W. Szott violin at the bottom of this page.

The violin is now sold.
