Gabriel David Buchstetter

Son of the violin maker Christoff André Buchstetter, Gabriel David was active in Stadtamhof, Regensburg around 1730-1780. His instruments are generally Stradivarian in form, although with distinctive modelling of the scroll, and made from fine quality wood. The varnish is often rather thin and dark, and laid over a stained ground. His labels are printed in both gothic and Roman type.
