Well, there is not a lot I can say that has not already been said! Going to Cardiff Violins does not feel like going to a shop… it feels like looking up old friends – who happen to know a lot about what you need! Good advice is always there, Chris never screams at my latest discoveries…such as Pellegrina violas or the Luis & Clark instrument (which I affectionately call Captain Plastic!). They know I love innovation… and colour… which is why Cécile knew I would be perfect for one of BAM’s less subtle cases! They also introduced me to Arcus bows, which I now use all the time. It is so easy to take for granted the convenience of having a place where you can go and try stuff and discuss ideas…something the internet cannot compete with.
