"I’ve been playing on my Svencino 3 since 2014. I’ve been very happy with it so far, it projects well in a concert hall and is good for concertos and solo playing. My teachers in the USA are also very pleased with the instrument. I’ve had it looked at in New York City by some of the best luthiers around, including Julie Reed-Yeboah who was very impressed with the sound and build of the instrument. She also commented positively on my harmonic tailpiece. The value of my violin has increased substantially since I bought it!"
