August, oh August, where art thou.......August?


Recommended Posts

One of my favorite violins to play is made by August Hensel. I have tried to find more info on him, but info on this particular maker seems scarce. Has anyone heard of him? The violin has lovely tonewood and a fantastic sound (at least to me and the few I've played it for). Heres how the label reads:

August Hensel

Fecit Schonbach, Anno 1894

Any info on this maker would be greatly appreciated. He's obviously German, but I've never seen another of his works...The violin is too finely crafted, IMHO, to just be a German cabinet maker who decided to take a crack at violin making.
