I fell in love with the Pluhar violin which became mine 4 days later. Three days after trying it, I used it in a concerto performance with the Wiener Concert-Verein. The next day I bought it. I’m blown away by the depth and richness of the bass while sparkling in the upper register. The D string is unusually powerful too…. all in all an amazingly even and balanced instrument with quick emission of sound yet warm qualities that would shine under any circumstances. I will never sell it…. ever.
