Beautiful Sound & Appearance
After looking for a decent violin for 6 months, visiting lots of local places as well as trying those on Craigslist, we finally came across a Carlo Lamberti Classic. We had heard about it and even contemplated on renting one to try it out but I confess I was really biased when it came to non-European violins! We wanted a quality German violin (antique or new), maybe Italian or French, but definitely not interested in Chinese violins. We wanted one under $1,000 but there was absolutely no decent German violin around that price tag anywhere (only the mass produced cheap ones that don't even sound like a real violin!).
