I just got my second violin from you. It was delivered 4 days after I paid for it, which is extremely fast, with the post office making a special Sunday delivery.

The violin is beautiful. It’s clear varnish gives it a striking look that my wife was immediately impressed with, and she’s difficult to impress. I replaced the strings with Dominants, and it plays with a beautiful tone. Compared to the Vecchio, it is not as deep, but neither does it sound too high either. It is a beautiful reproduction of a Stradivarius that I believe will get better with age. Though I am not a professional musician, I have been playing violins for 30 years, and I can tell that this is a very fine instrument.

The violin was packed well and it arrived in perfect condition. I’m very impressed with the free case you provided, and I think you are too modest in describing it on your ebay listing. This type of case would be considered mid-range quality by most violin shops.

Thanks again for your eye for craftsmanship, and please do pass my compliments on to the luthier.
