I know, I know… lately all I have been writing about are modern instrument makers, but I can’t help myself. Being a modern maker myself I cannot help but admire newer instruments. This Stopka violin is no exception, made in 1991 it is a great violin for the value and very hard to compete with.
I have seen Stopka violins sell for over $10,000! And even at that price I believe that they are a bargain. Stopka is well known for his tone and has won many awards.
Wladek Stopka specializes in Stradivari copies, don’t we all copy Stradivari and follow in the masters footsteps! This Stopka violin is very fairly priced at $6,500 and I do not see it lasting very long!
