About This Item

Possesses a brilliant, assertive, soaring tone, allowing the artist to fill the hall all the way to the back row. With exuberant layers of tonal complexity, echoing the traditions of Stradivari violins.

Every serious violinist reaches a point where they are driven to discover and hone their unique voice. It could be a voice that is suited to the solo repertoire, requiring a violin that is capable of expressing that voice boldly. Or, that voice may gain its best expression in making music with other artists, where a violin must be capable of both great expressiveness as well as blending.

Our John Cheng Reserve Collection violins are the finest in the John Cheng family, gracefully hand crafted and finished with care. Fine spirit varnish, applied by hand, is delicately shaded, with subtle antiquing. SHAR's best luthiers perform the setup, so critical to performance, taking the time and care required to bring out their best qualities. Fitted with premium strings, each John Chang Reserve Collection violin is play tested and optimally adjusted by a professional violinist, assuring the best possible tone and playability.
