Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What is the difference between the Strad and Guarneri violin models you make?

A: The Strad copy is more powerful, sounds sweet mellow, and the Guarneri copy is more sweet. This is only what I think and my customers told me about. I like them both, some one like the Guarneri model just as personnal preference, the Guarneri model is a bit different in size and shape from the Strad model.

Q: What is the difference between antique and traditional varnish you make?

A: The varnish is very good for the sound quality, there is no difference between the antique look varnish and traditional varnish in the sound quality, the only differences are the colour and looking.

Q: What is the difference between one piece and two piece maple back for your violins and violas?

A: There is no difference in sound quality, but you may think the one piece back looks nicer, actually the two piece back is really good as well, and price would be cheaper. we have to cut larger maple that is for a cello back to small for a one piece back violin or a viola.

Q: Do you make one piece top violins?

A: We do, but need to charge some extra, we don't think that is necessary for a one piece top, again, we need to cut alarger piece for a cello to small for a one piece top violin, But if you like, then we can do it.
