Chinese violins? I have a family member making a trip to Beijing in December of 2006. I will ask her to check out some Chinese violins for me. Are there some good ones out there? I've done a little research via the Internet on a Chinese luthier named Bai Li Xing. His instruments seem pretty good based on the references and descriptions on his web page. He uses 15-20 year naturally seasoned Chinese and/or European maple and Himalayan spruce and claims to use his own recipes for varnish. What experience have some of you had with the Chinese violins? Good quality? By that I mean suitable for a professional level vioin. Let me know of your experiences with Chinese violins.
