I had an appointment at a music shop about 45 minutes from my house. I told them what I was after and they sorted out a selection of violins for me to try. I settled on the shops on brand which is called Caswell’s Etudes. We all agreed it sounded the best! I probably should have looked around more but I wanted it so I bought it ! We all agreed it sounded lovely just such a nice tone it’s z really nice deep reddish brown as well which I love! I think it sounds really authentic.
