I am currently playing on a Klotz violin, circa 1800 - it has a lovely rounded sound but does limit me in tonal projection.
I think the best way to describe the sound is refined and pure but slightly limited in richness.
I am looking for a high quality, modern instrument with a full sound, and am interested in the chinese market. I realise that the vast majority of chinese factories cater for the student level but there must be individual luthiers who make instruments for the professional end of the market. Does anyone have any experience or advice?
