Emil Hermann was one of the most important violin dealers in Berlin, later opening a shop in New York in 1924. Among his clients was Jascha Heifetz, who purchased his famous Guarneri Del Gesú in 1922. Among his employees were great luthiers like Simone Sacconi and Mario Frosali. Hermann acquired fine violins from the best luthiers in Germany to sell in his shop. This particular instrument was made for and sold by Hermann, and is in new condition, looking as if it was recently made. It has an exceptional tone, full and powerful.
