This seems to speak volumes as to the quality of Pierre's violins. What an amazing endorsement, when the reviewer says you have to consider where you will be playing because of the sheer power of the instrument. I know what my next instrument is going to be. The Fiddlerman Concert Violin.

Problem is, with that microphone placement and all the compression that has been applied, you can't really marry what she says to the sound you're hearing, you just have to take her word for it.

@Andrew Shumway  Let's be honest, Allison is a kinda negative person in her reviews. Even when she is pro something, she tells you what a piece of crap it is. When a person says they were really surprised they tend to be doubtful before they ever experience the situation, and she likes to constantly remind you that she is used to playing on a violin that cost more than your......entire life. For her to actually give a positive review surprised me, because, well, I was doubtful she would.

It's a given, when Fiddlerman or Michael O'Gieblyn pick up a violin, its going to sound good. Michael demonstrated a Kennedy and it sounded a lot better than it should have, no secret Kennedy is weak.

If I pick up a violin and demonstrate it and it sounds incredible, you need to do 2 things. First, buy that violin, I had nothing to do with it sounding incredible. Second, call an exorcist, just in case I'm possessed by a demon that loves music, because that's what friends do for each other. devil-violin

I can’t see the need or the goal to find it necessary to denigrate a Fiddlerman Violin because it lacks the model/type of chin rest of her “antique.”  And to say nothing about the matter in her other reviews (which appear to feature the same or very similar accessory).
