Thanks Carolyn & Cindy! It’s certainly a beautiful sounding violin. I feel really excited & motivated now to improve my playing to do it justice. I made my choice after whittling down the selection to 3 or 4 & was really interested to hear the difference in the tone & sound of them all. Apparently in general, German violins tend to have a bright & louder tone whereas English ones are more variable. This one wasn’t as loud but has this sweetness in the mid range that I just really love.
Cindy, I play right handed only,I just figured out how to turn my video round rather than have the mirror setting! 😆
