I bought this violin for my daughter 18 months ago. We had it for an in-home trial along with 2 other instruments from Shar and 6 other violins from various violin shops all ranging in price etween $750 to $2000. The Lamberti Classic LV14 stood out from the beginning. Even our VERY picky philharmonic teacher kept going back to this one in a blind test (not knowing the manufacturer nor the price). The violin has a sweet and warm tone, perfect balance between brightness and depth of sound. It plays really well in the upper positions without being screechy or nasal. I would say it has a medium projection compared to other violins in its price range. It comes with Dominant strings, they sound great but my daughter prefers the Obligato ones. We switched to Pirastro Obligato (silver D and Gold E) and it sounded so much better. However the Gold E was hissing a tiny tiny bit, so changed it to Steel E String Obligato and problem solved.
