"For a new violin, it already has a big voice, nicely balanced on all four strings which made dynamics easy to control in the upper positions. The tone is rich and sweet and responds well to different articulations as well as variations in vibrato. This is without doubt a good "solo" violin."
He also had this to say:
"The one common trait of all 3 violins was in fact the ease with which I was able to handle them. Shifting, bow contact points, finger spacing, all felt immediately comfortable and correct for my hands."
