Experience with Andranik Gaybaryan violins?

Edited: December 20, 2019, 10:14 AM · I've found a Gaybaryan violin that I like very much and was wondering if anyone else here owns or has played his instruments and would be willing to share their experiences with this maker.

This might make for an interesting comparison:

I don't know what the violin is but it's certain to be more expensive!

These two recordings of the 2nd concerto are as different as can be - somewhat difficult to tell how much of that is due to the difference in violins, although there are certainly significant differences. And this one of P2 compared to the one I'd seen earlier of P1 are also completely different in terms of recordings. In that one, his violin sounds fairly "bright" which is not the case in this one.
