  2. Testimonial: "Something Special"

    Dear Ted, In January the 22nd I made up my mind and gave "Click!" to the "Place Order" button in your website. The Yamaha SV-150 (along with a Coda Bow Prodigy) was on its first steps towards its final destination...When I opened the violin box the first thing I saw was a piece of paper with something handwritten on it. It was something special to actually receive a note with your handwriting on it, since now a day almost no one takes a moment to do such a thing. That note made me wonder when was the last time I sat down and let someone know I care... I guess, I just want to say thanks... Sincerely yours,
    Alejandro Chanut

  8. Video: Thomas Jenkins plays Jordan violin through a Talk Box effect!

    thomas jenkins
      Thomas Jenkins has been a customer of ours for the better part of a decade now! Not only is he an amazing player and a genuinely nice guy, from our perspective, he’s practically our ideal customer. He came to us when he was first starting his electric violin journey, then kept in touch with us, kept abreast of the field, and consistently updated both his knowledge and his equipment. He traded his Fender for an NS Design CR-4; tried a six-string fretted Viper; bought an Acoustic Image Ten2 and extension cabinet — as his needs as a musician grew and changed, he came back to us, and we put the gear he needed in his hands at each stage of his musical journey. Thomas loves the nuanced sound of his acoustic, but realizes that the electric violin is a different tool for a different purpose, and doesn’t hesitate to reach for that tool when it’s what his music needs. He’s always willing and eager to try out what’s new; his latest axe is Jordan electric violin with the StringAmp magnetic pickup system. Even as he embraces the acoustic sound of traditional fiddling styles, he’s out there on the edge, experimenting with talk-boxes and effects — looking for the next place the electric violin will take him.

    **Update** (9/23/2013)

    Thomas recently won the Louisiana State Fiddle Championship (on acoustic fiddle)! Click here to read more about his championship run.

  10. Fourness Fuse: A Customer's Review and Testimonial

    by Omar Lopez
    Omar Lopez with Fourness Fuse Omar Lopez with Fourness Fuse
    As someone who swore by the sound and build of my Zeta Jazz Fusion 5-string violin for over ten years, I stayed loyal to Zeta through several years of what seemed to be their most difficult financial times and a lot of turnover within their shop.  I have to admit I was pretty bummed when Zeta closed down, but I first heard about Evan Fourness in October 2010 through a friend on the Fiddle Forum, so I got in touch with him immediately and I'm so happy I did.  Therefore, this review not only talks about the quality and superb craftsmanship of the instrument I purchased, but also of the great experience I had in dealing with Evan and the great customer service and personalized attention he gave me as a buyer of his product.

  19. Trust

    We had phone calls last week from, not one, but two players wanting to put a pickup on fine Cremonese violins – a Stradivari and a Rogeri, both over 300 years old! We discussed their concerns just like we do with every customer, but the stakes are certainly higher when the instrument in question is worth more than my house, my cars, my business and pretty much everything I own!
