Over the past few years I have shown a couple of violins to Hans Pluhar for the reason of sound improvement. No matter what quality or price range Hans has always dedicated himself to my concerns with sincere engagement. It has happened more than once that he suggested clever solutions that I would never have thought of. I have always been fascinated by the way he goes about sound problems and how competently he solves them. This is why I think it is worth driving a few 100km in order to benefit from Hans Pluhar’s expertise.
