Hello, everybody! I suppose you all know about the new (?) composite (carbon fiber) violins made by Luis and Clark (are there any other on the market?). If any of you owns one, could you tell us what you like about it (and what you don't)? Also, how does one go about buying one? It is not possible for me to try one, apparently... Are these instruments supposed to sound the same and one does not really need to try them and select THE ONE?? I received a package from Mrs. Leguia recently and Mr. Rosenthal seems to be trying many violins with the aim of selecting the one he'd like best... so I don't see why the other customers wouldn't, couldn't, shouldn't do the same... On the web there is also a sound sample of a composite violin built by two students at the USC. It sounds very, very nice, in my opinion, better than the "Luis and Clark"s. Are these composite violins just coming out and it would be wise to wait? Any reply would be much appreciated! Thanks in advance!
