"This instrument definitely has the mark of an amazing luthier. I've seen some really nice expensive violins and cellos, and the wood quality and build of this instrument definitely rivals a lot of them. The sound is great as well. It resonates strongly, and you can feel the body of the instrument vibrate with almost every note, as though it's alive."
