Wojciech Topa Violins

Click on images to enlarge

Back to Violins for Sale

Mr. Wojciech (pronounced Voy-zhec) Topa is from Zakopane, Poland and is one of Europe's finest luthiers.

He creates master-grade, professional level violins and violas. He handcrafts violins and violas from "scratch," starting with the special selection of woods and finishing with the painstaking care of setting up the instrument.

Topas's "bench" (handmade) violins are handcrafted in the style of Guarneri and Guadagnini utilizing methods employed in the violin making profession since the 1700's.

These gorgeous violins are carved of select well-seasoned Carpathian Maple for the neck, back and ribs with a European Spruce top. They are finished with hand applied traditional varnish. The fine instrument in the photos were varnished in Mediterranean yellow and red ochres to deep mahogany reds to produce gorgeous firey finishes.

The sound of these instruments is rich, full and powerful. The mature and glowing warm nuances make it a violin for professional players or amateurs who want "the best" in a new violin without the $20k price tag!

Many professionals around the globe play a Topa violin, including Polish violin virtuoso Janusz Wawrowski who featured the Topa on his CD recording of the Paganini Caprices in 2008. Add to that recent customers in Canada, United States and Hong Kong; there is a growing list of ecstatic Topa players, including the Filochowski siblings who were invited to the USA by maestro Itzhak Perlman to attend The Julliard School of Music on full scholarship.

It is very important to mention that Wojciech Topa is NOT to be confused with Albert Topa, nor workshop instruments bearing the Topa label. These are certainly the finest bench instruments made by any Topa. Keep this in mind when comparison shopping.

Each violin is equipped with fine hand-carved ebony fittings (rosewood by special request), Evah Pirazzi strings, and a deluxe European maple bridge setup by Topa himself.

Fiddleheads is happy to provide a letter for your insurance company stating full retail and replacement value.
