I was halfway around the world from home when my family asked me about finding a violin for my sister – having less than two weeks left in Europe, I scoured the countryside for violinmakers and instrumental workshops to no avail. I almost at the point of giving up after having to deal with people who were hesitant to do business with an international student, or shops that did not have a wide variety of selection of violins for our asking price. It was just my luck that I found Martin’s website and contacted him about the violins that were available for purchase.
“Martin has been extremely courteous and informative about every question we have had about the instrument and its condition. After a string of emails, our beautiful Roth violin arrived with no harm done, from all the way across the Atlantic! It is a lovely instrument with a sweet, strong tone and definitely worth it’s value. Martin also helped us in selecting a bow that would be a good fit for the violin and its level of playing. Any small bumps in the road that we encountered in terms of purchasing or fixing up the violin, Martin was able to assist us with his knowledge and advice. We are so thankful for our experience and will definitely keep him in mind for our future instrumental needs.
