Violin Labelled Johann Gottfried Hamm, early1800s German

Violin Labelled Johann Gottfried Hamm, early1800s German

Fine old 4/4 German Violin falsely attributed to Johann Gottfried Hamm. Excellent quality 1800s german trade work, but features not aligned to Hamm's typical making style. Freshly restored and sounding fantastic.  


Mild damage from woodworm has been treated and repaired and brand new Larsen Tzigane strings give the instrument a rich, mellow tone. This instrument has matured for more than two hundred years, and has a depth and subtle to sound that can't be imitated.


If you are interested in this instrument or another, please do get in contact with Jonathan via email or telephone. At this point we can arrange a no obligation testing session and see where we are. 



  • Additional Info

    It's important to me that each person who comes to me leaves with something they're absolutely happy with. With this in mind, I work within a six month returns policy. If you find the instrument isnt behaving as you would hope but is still in the same condition it was sold in, just get back in touch. We can discuss options and try to isolate the problem, but if this turns out to be impossible, a full refund will be given.
