This is a professional solo grade violin made for Marco of Italy, Marco has a friend in Italy who is a master luthier.
Marco wrote me a reference about the violin, and his friend luthier only gave one sentence as result after checked the violin both inside and outside, told by Marco, on 2017-7-22:
He saw the violin and said he really done very well.
(the first "He" is Marco's friend luthier in Iatly, and the second "he" is our first master luthier Lu Qing).
Below is Marco's reference on 2017-7-1:
In a perfect packaging is quickly arrived at my home the violin shipped by Mr. Dong. The very accurate packing immediately gave me the impression of professionalism and experience of Mr. Dong's firm. The white violin appears very well done, also taken care of in details and respectful of the indications that I gave during its realization. Now I just have to do with wood preparation and varnishing. However, the starting point seems to me great, so I expect, at work, an excellent result. Many Thanks to Mr. Dong for the quickly assistance and presence during all this time.
Ok, Now, if anyone would like to ask for questuions to Marco about the violin, then please let me know, I will ask Marco if I can pass his email address to you. If so, you will talk to him about the violin Lu made for him.
We have just finished an Advanced Student Viola Archinto 1696 402mm, it sounds very top, this viola is going to New Zealand. This viola only costed the customer very little money, please view our price page to find out how much.
However, this viola is much higher quality in terms of sound and craftsmanship than those BIG name Chinese luthiers in the USA who sell their China factory production line violins/violas/cellos at US$2500/US$2800/US$5000 with some French name printed on their labels.
This viola is also at least the same as or may be better than those BIG name Chinese luthiers in the USA an individual made viola at $10,000 and over range.
This viola is full hand made by our 2nd master luthier individuly with hand tools only from the beginning to the end without any assistance and the thickness distribution is never the same as the plan and the sound is tested at each single step during making.
This is only an Advanced Student Viola, and not a professional solo grade.
Below are two references from our customers, they are only two here, more references please view from our reference page.
1. Our No. 448 professional solo violin customer from Rockville USA:
I had a quick chance to play and look at the violin. Wow, great it plays better than Jay Haide violins that I carry. I am not the greatest player but I will have one of my staff play it tomorrow. Great violin, were in business. I just need the 7k bow to sample then I will put together a package and sell many. I know it will sound better and better as it ages a little.
2. Oliviero from Italy ordered an advanced student violin from us, he wrote me a reference today (2016-11-23) as below:
Today I got Half hour to try the violin below my first impressions:
Sound : very powerful

Keyboard : perfect
Harmonic: very clear fluted

To try: I made scales and arpeggios in fist second and fifth positions

Please note, the one Oliviero has is our advanced student violin only, not a professional solo violin.
Here is the violin for Oliviero:
I was in Shanghai from the Oct 24th 2016 for a week.
