Works of Art, From the Hands of a Passionate Craftsman
Upon examination of these violins, great attention to detail and a high level of technical mastery is quickly apparent. But it is in the playing that the real value of these violins emerges. Regardless of pattern, all violins have a quality that makes them easy to play, delighting the hand and ear. Strong, generous tone, with layers of complexity, is the first quality that one notices. Apply more and more bow weight, and the tone simply opens out, with great projection, yet with no overbearing qualities or harshness. Spend even more time playing, and a myriad of intangibles reveal themselves. Response is immediate, whether bowing with strong detache or flautando.

Atelier fur Streichinstrumente
I had this instrument trialed along with another antique violin in the price range between 8k to 10k. This violin sounded warm, yet focused and had great sound projection. It's a beautiful instrument to look at as well. I would recommend this violin.
