Bow maker / Violin maker
"The Carrodus Violin" was a trade name for violins imported from Mirecourt by Hawkes & Co in London from the late 1880s to the early 1900s. They were named in honour of the violin virtuoso John Tiplady Carrodus (1836-1895), a prolific concert master, soloist, and professor of the violin who enjoyed nationwide celebrity status. In practice, Hawkes appear to have gone from one workshop to another, and ...Read More standards are variable. At their very best, these instruments were selected from makers imitating the work of Ch. J.B. Collin-Mezin, but are normally made to a much lower standard. They are made to a Stradivari model, and bear no relationship to the 1743 del Gesu of that name.
