Fine Carl Becker violin – played by Sein An

Before going off the an international competition in Romania – dedicated to the memory of Enescu – this beautiful Carl Becker “del Gesu” copy from the 20’s needed a lot of gluing,bridge work and fingerboard adjustment  to make it all  it can be.

Carl Becker Sr is clearly the best American violinmaker of his era – you see more of his instruments in the Midwest than here on the East coast an his instruments command a higher value out there as well….but his work holds up beautifully against the finest work of today …and of the golden eras before him.
