Otto Mockel.


Recommended Posts

Hello,

I've tried internet to find info. on Otto Mockel violin maker, but there is very little.

Could anyone post some bio info on him please. Between a Paul Knorr and a Mockel  which is a better buy. Both in similar condition.

Thank you.

Thank you all for your answers.

Martin, I'm not in the market to buy a violin, but having seen and played a Paul Knorr, I was so impressed, I wanted to learn a bit more about the individual German makers, so I stumbled upon the name of Otto Mockel as one of the best German makers. (apologies for the umlaut, I don't know how to put one on).

I think Otto M had a brother Max who also made violins. He wrote a book on constructing a violin using the Golden Ratio (we call it the Gyldne snitt in Norwegian) it is an often used explanation for beauty or balance in art. 

I found a picture of one of his violins: https://www.wrightviolins.com/max-mockel

Corrected the name on the Golden Ratio
