About This Item

TEACHER CHALLENGE: If for any reason you and your student don't agree this is the best $2,500 violin, simply return it within 30 days of purchase for a full refund. If the instrument is returned within that time period due to dissatisfaction, we will send you, the teacher, a $25 SHAR gift certificate for your efforts.

We asked for the very best from the John Cheng workshop, and they responded with this remarkable limited series. Inspired by the greatest known Guarneri del Gesu, each violin is delicately handcrafted using European tonewoods carefully selected and patiently aged. The resulting tonal characteristics are refined and graceful yet with a powerful, muscular sound. The John Cheng Limited Edition Guarneri is at its best in recital, where it amply fills the room with its appealing sound.

"The violins of the John Cheng Limited series are outstanding instruments of superb quality. An instrument of this caliber would be at home on the concert stage or recording studio. In fact, I am looking forward to using one in my own recording work."
- Endre Granat,
Concertmaster, Hollywood Studios

"I just recently purchased a John Cheng Limited Series violin as a backup to my Gagliano, and I love it. I find the power, depth, richness, and ease of playing to be astonishing. I see this as a real game-changer for my students, for this instrument is comparable to violins costing much more."
- Larry Shapiro,
Artist in Residence, Professor of Violin, Butler University
