JACOB VON DER LIPPE // Violin maker

a Modern Classic


Being one of Norway's most prominent and acknowledged violinmakers, Jacob von der Lippe has been building instruments for musicians at home and abroad since 1998. Jacob's instruments are coming out of the tradition of the Italian masters. He trained at the "Istituto Professionale Internazionale per l'Artigianato Liutario e del Legno 'A. Stradivari' " in Cremona, Italy.

“With a new instrument, the musician can actually shape the sound in the first years, making it an integral part in their way of communicating music,” explains Norwegian Violin maker Jacob von der Lippe. “Instead of doing repairs, I focused on making new right from the start.”

Jacob von der Lippe's instruments have a sound focusing upon warmth, projection and richness in overtones. As the first Norwegian ever, Jacob was accepted as a member of the Entente Internationale des Luthiers et Archetiers in 2011.
