Joseph Wade

Joseph Wade was amongst the small group of luthiers based in Leeds towards the end of the 19th Century and is notable for his decision to base many of his violins on an interpretation of a Stainer model. This model was rarely used in England throughout the 19th Century: the choice paid off as this violin sounds absolutely fantastic!

The length of back is a generous 360mm and the violin was completed in 1887. The condition is excellent.
