Hans Pluhar’s violins possess a responsiveness and an ability to react, qualities found only on extraordinary instruments. As you play them, you can sense the development potential, as each instrument grows enormously with the player — both tonally and characteristically — an attribute that makes a really good new violin. The violins’ clarity, freshness and assertiveness, but especially the dynamic range of the tone, undoubtedly bear the distinctive mark of the luthier, making it an original instrument of the highest caliber.
