singing violin - fine soloist violins in Kul Violins studio

Power of advertisement

I am always so excited reading such kind of advertisements:

These four makers create the some of the best starter instruments we have ever heard, and your comfort and maximum tone is assured by the exacting standards of our set-up. They are very affordable, excellent value, and come with a lifetime guarantee on workmanship and materials to the original owner.


Some of the nicest instruments we have ever seen coming from China . . . are modeled on classic master instruments and made of superb materials. Best of all, while sounding great, they are very affordable and beautifully made for the most affordable line we carry.


. . . instruments begin with the patterns established by great makers of the past like Antonio Stradivarius and Guarneri del Gesu, bringing you centuries of instrument-making experience for you at affordable prices. Loft-seasoned spruce and maple are shaped into violins, violas, and cellos. They are carefully regulated with a bassbar specially suited to the climate of the United States, and brush-varnished by hand with a classic-style finish that reminiscent of fine antique instruments. Finally, after they are set up and tonally adjusted . . .

I found these nice words in an article of violin family instruments seller.

So, after reading such advertisements I am usually thinking to myself:

Isn't it so nice to see exceptional violins that cost well below $1000 ?

Next my question is as follows:

Yah, probably violin makers already becoming redundant ?

At last I have my ideal violin. I turned down 14 instruments which came from all around the country, including an original cremonese violin, which I just couldn't convince myself to like. However I had no second thoughts about my new violin, made by Czes and Birute Kul, and instantly knew this was the one. The violin has very clean articulation and a sweet tone, also
projecting well. I have had many compliments about it. A lot of careful workmanship has obviously gone into the violin, which is very elegant and distinctive in looks. Before you look anywhere else, I strongly recomend Czes and Birute. It could save a lot of trouble, time and money.
