Robert Smith, South Wales

Over the past several years I have been a customer of Cardiff Violins both for the purchase of instruments and for repair/restoration work.   They have always provided unparalleled service in both these areas.  Ever patient and willing to give all the time necessary for the trying of instruments and for their adjustment/setup, it has been a pleasure to spend time in the shop.  It is particularly welcome that instruments are competitively priced, as are workshop charges.


My most recent acquisition is a fine violin by Eric Jackson.  This is a superbly built instrument, modelled on Guarneri.  The violin would, I am confident, meet the requirements of any player seeking a responsive instrument, wonderfully even across the four strings, and possessing all the power and projection needed for anything the violinist is likely to encounter in their musical lives, whether they be amateur or professional.  I was very impressed on first handling the instrument but even more so when some further adjustment in the shop brought out even more of the violin’s undoubted quality.


Very good to be able to recommend Cardiff Violins unreservedly.
