I visited Mr. Bai on a visit to Beijing in late November 2007. I had the opportunity of playing one of his 'professional' violins, which retail at something around $2400-$2600. This would appear to be pretty good value. It was handsome, very well made and had a nice ringing sound. He is an experienced luthier who works in a traditional way with good materials - old East European wood for his dearer violins, younger Chinese wood for his student violins. He is in addition a very charming man. On the basis of my visit I have ordered a violin from him - it is due some time in mid 2008 ; needless to say, I will be better able to judge his work then, but I am very hopeful!
