I know this is a controversial subject and I hesitate to open such a large can of worms, but I am curious. Has anyone here played on a violin by Joseph Nagyváry, or heard one played by someone they know well? I have heard wildly conflicting reports as to the sound quality and playability of these fiddles and I'm looking for at least a sliver of ground truth. I don't want this to turn into a flame war, and I'm not really looking for a big discussion over whether modern science has a place in the ancient art of violin making, nor do I want a debate over whether Mr. Nagyváry himself is a genius or a crackpot. :) I would just like to hear some about the violins themselves, on their own merits or lack thereof. I'm just curious! :)
